Linux is saving the world.
Yes, you read that right. I wrote "is saving." Not "will save" or "has a chance to save."
How is this so? Forget, for a moment, that Linux is fast, efficient, safe, and on and on. Forget that Linux is free and capable of providing long-term inexpensive computing solutions to users ranging from a migrant worker to a Fortune 500 CEO. These are all true, but right now this is not germane to the point I am making this week.
Linux, it seems, may be in some small way responsible for the improvement of health and well-being of millions of poverty-stricken and ill people around the planet.
