I bought into Red Hat this week. I had a discussion with my brother-in-law who's had several books published about Unix, NT, Windows, and Linux. He's in Germany and thinks many big businesses are going to start utilizing Linux. He also hates Microsoft although he claims to not be one of "the religious crusaders" against Bill and his company. I'm figuring Red Hat has several things going for it. One, it is providing easy access to Linux and some software for it for lazy folks like me; two, it is first out of the gate, like INTERNET IN A BOX once was; three, linux itself seems to have a bright future. And actually, I guess a fourth would be the wide spread acrimony towards Microsoft. Just some thoughts,
Dan
