To encourage debate ...

First lob an intellectual grenade and step back to see how the debris field forms.

On Thursday, killing some time as we were waiting for the competitors to finish. I put in a pitch for an article on the pervasiveness of Linux. Penning, on acceptance, before 'end of play' ... this article was ready for release on Friday morning.

By early PM, (GMT) ... the article was republished here and here.

As you can see from both sites, the debate is raging. With the help of the world skills competitors and my friend Kevin Large. Collectively in less than an hour we created a grenade that has encouraged considerable debate.

The irony is that it was the 'Microsoft' day of the competition, where I was writing the article on a Google cloud service (Linux supported), while using a Mac ... go shiny.

I am sure the debate will rage for a considerable time, with detractors and fans on both sides. The reality is, as Swift debated the war over the end of an egg in Gulliver. Geeks will argue over what they deem to be the 'best' operating system.

Go Linux/Mac/Windows ;-)
