Linux "The idea that Linux is primarily a community-based project based on the work of thousands of independent, idealist hackers died a quiet death at home on March 27th. The proximate cause of death was the Linux Foundation's naming of its new board of directors. This leading non-profit Linux organization's board included many Fortune 500 executives from around the world - but not one representative from a purely community-based Linux organization."

Any article that quotes ESR -- and uses his opinions as evidence -- isn't worth reading, let alone discussing.


...funny, I feel kinda the same way about RMS<g>.

Seriously, to say that something isn't worth reading because of the author (or someone quoted in the article) is to unnecessarily limit the potential for learning.
