Way back in 2000, I really didn’t think Cooking with Linux would last as long as it did. In fact, when Marjorie Richardson (Linux Journal’s Editor in Chief at the time) originally asked me if I could do a regular column (after the success of the September 1999 column), I actually said, “Well, let me do it for six months and see how it goes.” It went rather well.
Still, way back when, I didn’t suggest specific wines. I just sent my faithful waiter off to fetch the wine. Later, I started mentioning individual varietals and later, specific bottles I enjoyed. But this is 2008 and you might find it interesting to see how things worked back then. Mes amis, I present you with the wine list for 2000.
A votre santé! Bon appétit!
