but the author of this blog thinks like a Microsoft jerk. Let's lock em into our platform! Free Software is intrinsicly valuable because it is free. People who use FireFox and get involved in the community that supports it will come to see that value. They'll understand that Free Software can be tailored to their needs. They'll understand that Free Software deals with maintenance issues faster and better. They'll come to expect the freedom of sharing and they will lose the crazy idea that sharing is somehow wrong. Once all this happens they'll choose to switch to Linux for the right reason: it's Free Software.
