You really should do something about those hallucinations.  There were
no such seminars, just a jocular reference.  At least it was sort of
jocular in 1991 or 1992 when it was made.  People have stopped laughing
about it long since.

Well, world domination in internet servers was already achieved in 1999,
according to <URL:http://leb.net/hzo/ioscount/data/r.9904.txt>

And Apache has been serving more than 50% of active websites for a
similar amount of time.

Among the top 500 super computers, GNU/Linux is employed on 78.2%

That's not exactly insignificant...
