I guess I should also add, in interest of full disclosure and to revive this thread's nice
reminiscing tone, that the only way the bubble affected *me* was the ~$30k windfall I got for
having a SourceForge.net account. (VA was having trouble finding enough developers to take
the pre-IPO stock it had reserved for them, so it started just offering it to everyone who'd
registered a username at the then-relatively-new SF). I was 18, and *just* grudgingly
admitting that I needed to find my first job... I lived for two years on that money :-). So,
if you know anyone who spent >$100 for a share of LNUX, you can tell them that *some* of that
cash went to a good cause. At least by some standards...
