📚 The unix ears and the rise of Linux.
This is a well written article talking of the landscape of proprietary unix desktops, the rise of Linux, and why Linux succeeded.
This article resonates with me (and perhaps tickles my confirmation bias). I feel nostalgic, as this was the start of my career (SLS was my second Linux distribution, following MCC interim). I agree with the authors opinion on free software licenses and Linux's secret weapons.
