Wow! This series of articles is definitely a trip through the past! So many names of people,
companies and events that have now faded into seemingly-distant memory. I remember starting
to read LWN back in your early days and continuing to read LWN (and advocate to others that
they should read LWN) all through the years of building LPI and moving on to e-smith and other
ventures. Thank you for writing this series of articles.
And thank you for continuing to produce LWN despite all the challenges. You still are the
best source to me for providing *context* to the stories that are going on out there.
Whenever I want to know what is happening within the world of Linux and open source, LWN is the
first site I head toward.
