Linux "At the end of 2010, the 'open-source' software movement, whose activists tend to be fringe academics and ponytailed computer geeks, found an unusual ally: the Russian government. Vladimir Putin signed a 20-page executive order requiring all public institutions in Russia to replace proprietary software, developed by companies like Microsoft and Adobe, with free open-source alternatives by 2015."

According to www.netcraft.com, The Wall Street Journal (www.wsj.com) uses Linux and Apache. As for FOX News (www.foxnews.com), their website also runs on Linux and Apache. Same for www.glennbeck.com, www.frontpagemag.com (which is owned by neo-con David Horowitz), and www.anncoulter.com.

As it turns out, Russia, China and Iran aren't the only ones who love Linux and Open Source. I can assume that because they all use Linux and Open Source, that the above-mentioned right wing blowhards also endorse it.

I'm just sayin'.
