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.
