Brett Glass has asked if I have a conflict of interest in Linux, 
because I have a "close relative" of is the CEO of a Linux company.  
Well, I do have a cousin, Ransom Love, who is the CEO of Caldera 
Systems.  And, my mother owns 400 shares of Caldera Systems, valued 
yesterday at $3,650.  She also owns stock in Microsoft and several 
other companies, through mutal funds, and most of my immediate 
family lives in the Seattle area, where the Microsoft monopoly has 
been a boon to the local economy.
