Much of what was written, I had already read similar elsewhere. That
article simply put it all in one place. For example, I had previously
read of Linux in cell phones, TiVo, appliances and supercomputers. I've
long known about how Linux is used in cluster supercomputers and how
places such as Fermilab and movie studios use them. So, I took that
article as a general round up of the Linux world, rather than breaking news.
