the coming of age for Linux on the desktop.
"Linux has had numerous obstacles to overcome before being truly viable in a corporate desktop environment. Issues such as hardware compatibility, usability, technical support, and software compatibility have restricted Linux' acceptance among IT professionals. Through the hard work and dedication of Open Source Software developers, most of whom write code for free, Linux has overcome these obstacles in the past couple years.
