Why I love Linux — even if I no longer use it | The Verge

Linux is doing just fine right now, and it’s not going anywhere. The idea that just five people in the world use it — a notion that holds some pretty unfortunate sway — is patently false. Nevermind that it basically won mobile… globally. Technically. So I want fawning coverage of the next kernel release. We should have lengthy Voxsplainers on why Tux is the Linux mascot. And we really need more love from mainstream developers, because Netflix is just a start and emulators aren’t enough. Linux matters. Period.

The title is misleading. The writer still plays with Linux.
