-Russ [Russell Beattie Notebook]
1993 was also when I first heard the word ‘Linux’, which, because we were British, was pronounced ‘Line-ux’. One of my Uni acquaintances showed it to me. “Look, free Unix on a pc”. “That won’t go anywhere”, I thought… This rates alongside my other great predictions such as, ‘Netscape are having an IPO, should I invest? Naa, they probably won’t be worth much’. And Yahoo, and Redhat… I console myself that I was a poor student and didn’t have much to invest at the time anyway. Wouldn’t have had enough money to get rich, just enough to have had one whale of a time at Uni.
