Linspire Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, writes: "With the recent news of several Linux vendors entering into partnership agreements with Microsoft (Novell, Linspire, Xandros), there has been much debate recently about two factions of Linux forming. Saying that Linux is going to be torn in two, makes for good press and lively debates, but this is certainly nothing new for Linux."

You know, as I think about the moral high ground statement. Sure its road that isn't oh so legal but at the same time the idea of OPEN source is that all things are public. Sure business is business as we know it today but I think the idea..at least the one I have is "if it was open I wouldn't have to do such things". Which brings up the question of how do you run and be successful in business if your open, but to be honest I think its possible as the community would help make your product the better one.
