Editorial The real heart of open source lies in its potential to be greater than the sum of its parts, the capacity to leverage the talent and abilities of an entire community of developers and users who are striving towards a common goal, according to an editorial at Linux Insider.

I am using Open Source and Gnu/Linux since one year ago, i have change to Gentoo/Linux, i don't use Windows, Windows are stoped in time.

Please explain stopped in time. Is Linux stopped in time because it's based on a 35 year old operating system?

I hate that interface! I feel mor free using Gentoo, i am not worry with license and piracy.

How do you feel more free using an operating system? That's just bizarre. So I guess you were pirating before? - because only pirates worry about piracy.

Open Source is good, we leave most of us in a democracy.

You state that open source is good and that most of us live in a democracy. Do you have a point in that statement?

So what is the problem of some freedom,
And who has problems with freedom?

t's cool knowing what are the source that we install in our System...

It is somewhat cool to have access to the source code of your system, but I will never buy that it gives you anymore freedom. And by freedom, I mean real freedoms such as freedom of speech, freedom of religion, economic freedom... Not the freedom to dick around with source code.

Maybe I take freedom more seriously than people that consider having source code freedom.
