I am afraid you're right. Despite here in Europe we have a lot of respect for the culture and technology coming from USA, recent events show that we _must_ be more independant, we don't want to be punished and treated just like kids by Bush and friends only because we said "Sorry, but we disagree". It's a question of freedom, of integrity. You can't keep IT away from economy, and you can't keep enconomy away from politic. So it is true to say that bush does a lot for Linux...
