"Looking back at Linux in 2004, I see one thing as clearly as I see my hand in front of my face: Linux is the mainstream.
Which companies stand behind Linux today? I mean really stand behind it, and not just give it lip service? It's companies such as Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Novell and Oracle. We're talking the who's who of American technology vendors.
Who's using Linux? Everybody. Small companies, Fortune 50 enterprises, nonprofits, governments. Everybody."
