Linux!?!? I agree!
How did it not make the list? Are they oblivious to the obvious? I evaluated and researched the potential of Linux about 5 years ago and concluded that it had a lot of potential, but was not ready for the mainstream yet, with the exception of a few niche server apps. Looking at it today, I conclude that it's ready for most any server role and that Linux at the corporate desktop is close to becoming a reality. I predict that in 5 more years, Linux will not only be ready for any desktop and or Server role, but that it will push Microsoft to the brink of extinction. Are you Laughing? Anyone remember Novell? Funny thing is that Novell is betting the farm on SUSE Linux and may end up having the last laugh ~10 years from now when everyone is saying, Hey do you remember Microsoft?
