Linux Journal Announces "They Said It" Contest

SEATTLE, WA -- SSC Publications, publisher of the award-winning monthly magazine Linux Journal, is pleased to announce a contest to identify the person who spoke a particular quote. The quote is as follows: "Proprietary software developers are all doing something wrong, but this doesn't mean they are all incompetent."

Twenty (20) random winners will be chosen from all the correct entries, and each will receive a free copy of "The Linux Cookbook", a Linux Journal Press book.

"We chose a large number of winners for this contest" commented Carlie Fairchild, VP of Marketing & Sales, "because 'The Linux Cookbook' is just so amazing. It has over 1,500 step-by-step Linux 'recipes' that cover the bread-and-butter issues our readers deal with every day."
