It's about Linux, but I think it applies equally to any pioneering technology, like ebooks. It also does an excellent job of illustrating how FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) works. This is sort of an oblique response to the recent WSJ article about how ebooks are a fad. People (including journalists writing for the WSJ) have been spreading FUD about Linux for 22 years.


First they ignore you.
Then they laugh at you.

Thank you! Just today I've been having a 'discussion' with someone on another forum. We are disagreeing about the success of self-publishing and I can see the pattern from this in the discussion.
