Parent article: Fifteen years of LWN
The first Linux book I bought was by Jon Corbet, in 1999 or so. Device Drivers. I was trying to convince a software development company that there was money to be made writing applications on a Linux platform. At that time I had absolutely no idea who he was.
Unfortunately, the 2002 event collapsed, which in hindsight I justify by saying that this proved Linux had arrived, as only minority groups form clan associations, the majority needs no lobby group :-)
I strongly recommend LWN to colleagues, 20 mins a week reading LWN enables you to sound knowledgeable at meetings!
Congratulations, and good luck ahead (I remember the scare 6 years ago as LWN talked of shutting down).
