Linux is still an operating system developed by geeks and hackers for 
geeks and hackers. The disconnect between us and the non-technical end 
user is still vast, and too many of us like it that way and will 
actually defend our isolation as a virtue.

When somebody with a degree in finance or architecture or can grab a 
Linux laptop and watch episodes of The Daily Show off of Comedy 
Central's website without a bearded Linux geek walking them through an 
elaborate hand-configuration process first, maybe we'll have a prayer.


In a period of great joy and pleasure you are comforted by the thought 
that tragedy is just around the corner.
