No and yes. Linux, the end-product is computerese.
Linux, the **processes** by which, a group of well-oiled networked group of
people around the world, who don't see each other face-to-face,
unincorporated -- essentially, the sewing together of passion-bits -- have
become valued at billions of dollars, and become the biggest threat to
Microsoft, is **not** computerese.
It is a new way of organising and coalescing ourselves, given the
exponential economic power of networking minds together and developing
reasoned consensuses at turbo speed, using the Internet.
In short, Linux is a super example of meta-organisation phenomena.
