 Hunting Penguins in the Desert: The CES Report

"When I walked into Netgear's booth, again I saw nothing about Linux. Yet, when I asked if they were using Linux, they said "Sure. Come over here and look at our Layer 3 switch". D-Link had a similar story: Sure, they have Linux in their stuff. It was like, Why even bring it up? You'd think I was asking if their gear came with power cords or Ethernet jacks. So, it's clear that Linux is fast becoming a pure infrastructural commodity--like the air we breathe. Why promote what's best taken for granted? Thus, take Linux's decreasing visibility as the inverse of its ubiquity."
