1023 cylinder boot old SCO Unix  by (newsgroup post)

I am not a railroad 
- A recent (February 2000) article by Forbes Magazine compares the Internet "revolution" to technology revolutions of the past: railroads, telephones, radio. All of these innovations followed the same general path of great excitement, great fortunes, dozens or even hundreds of small companies springing up with soaring stock prices, and always the great shakeout came where the big companies took over, consolidating smaller companies markets and settling down to stability. Along the way, of course, fortunes were made and lost, companies melded into larger corporations or just withered away and died. Traditional "big business" always wins eventually, sanity is restored to the stock market, and we all stand around like good little drones waiting for the next 7 day wonder.
