Editorial I was reading today about how Linux Mint developers altered the Banshee music player source code to redirect affiliate revenue from Amazon music orders to them instead of Banshee. They've reportedly made less than $4, which has caused a kerfluffle among those paying attention to that corner of the world. But it raises a larger point that has been swirling around for a couple of decades: an OS vendor has a lot of power to influence, and even monetize their user base. Where should they draw the line?

I am always worried about people saying they want to censor the internet to protect kids instead of taking measure that prevent people in various from being alone with kids.


What, like their parents? You DO realize that the parents are the ones pimping these kids out in a lot of cases, right?
