I run 4 Linux systems and one OS/2 on my home network. It didn't
replace Windows, as I've never run Windows as the primary OS on any
computer I've owned. I have at various times run Linux or OS/2 on my
work computers, but not currently. While the company I work for promotes
Linux, and many employees use it, I can't because I'm supporting a
customer that runs Windows and I have to be able to work with their
systems. I had previously provided OS/2 support for my employer. Maybe
one of these days, I'll get into the Linux area of the company.
