He's right on some of his points. The one thing that Linux has going for
it in this case IS the fact that IBM is fully behind it.

All of the responses, seemingly from Linux zealots, are pretty useless.
I'll be the first to admit I can be a Linux zealot but I'm also a realist.
Those people have blinders on.

Anyway, who cares what gets ported to Linux? Doesn't more software and
more development environments mean more choices and thus more users?
