Welcome back, Ghost. I hope you liked that essay, which made the rounds
several days ago.

In case you shied away from news or  even found yourself occupied  with some
_real work_ *smile*, let me assure you that /plenty/ of wonderful things are
showering GNU/Linux on a daily basis. The latest major milsetone is  Java to
be Open Sources (officially states by Schwartz)  and its sidling  with Linux
(Ubuntu in particular).

Best wishes,
