Teen Sex and the Linux Desktop

Blog from Nat Friedman of Novell:

"The [Linux desktop] has become a lot like teenage sex," Matthew Szulik, Red Hat CEO, said recently. "A lot of people are talking about it but not many people are doing it."

On September 15th The National Center for Health Statistics published a report with some handy graphs illustrating the incidence of sexual intercourse among teenaged Americans.

These graphs report that by age 19, 69% of American males and 77% of American females have had sexual intercourse. In fact, by age 17, about half of all teenagers have taken a ride on the wild elmo.

So, I don't know if Matthew has teenaged children or not, but if he does, I hope he's paying more attention to his Linux teams!
