Linux Today has another Comdex Report discussing Slackware, SuSe and FreeBSD. And Computer World has an exuberant article about Linux... which does however miss the point that Linux is growing very quickly, invalidating their argument that Linux Users are used to paying little for software. Many newcomers to Linux are used to paying for software. And while many older Linux users (ISPs, businesses, etc) will be happy to buy new apps, I expect a large number of specialist software companies' (think Oracle, Verilog, etc) customers will be migrating from Windows or another Unix.
