"While Linux and the Web grew up together, the Linux desktop has also become 
useful for print media. TeX, the typesetting computer language originally 
developed on a DEC minicomputer in 1980, is alive and well on Linux. In 
March, India's largest phone company used TeX and a PostgreSQL database to 
turn out 400,000 copies of the two-volume telephone directory for 
Thiruvananthapuram, the capital of Kerala province. The project, which had 
required 50 people and six months' time using conventional print production 
technology, was accomplished in four months by a smaller team using Linux. "
