Linux System Administration in the New ERA
,----[ Snippets ]
| The success of Mozilla's Firefox and Openoffice.org's productivity suite
| has breathed life into people's aspirations about Desktop Linux. As a
| result, the vast majority of articles published today focus there and
| ignore the strides made on the Linux server. Unlike the Linux server of
| the past, today's version supports rocket science and its gains far
| exceed those of the Desktop.
| Today, we see twice that number or approximately four million unique
| IP addresses reading articles on Linux news sites. That does not
| include sites outside the US, Slashdot or Digg. So, a significant
| number of people read articles about Linux and they represent only
| a percentage of all its users.
| I refer to the current Linux infrastructure play as the "New Era".
| Linux has matured rapidly and far surpassed the expectations of
| the smartest analysts I know
