How Far Behind Is Linux?
If some of Linus Torvalds's own family members back in Finland don't use Linux, what hope is there for the rest of us?
Linux, the free operating system whose development is overseen by Mr. Torvalds, has long been entrenched in the worlds of science and commerce. When Google gives you a search result, a Linux machine is doing the work. At tens of thousands of other companies, computer managers take comfort in the fact that these days, no one ever gets fired for "buying" open source.
But world domination? That's another story.
