Novell and Ximian Novell and Microsoft recently entered into an agreement regarding software patents (really?) that betrays the rest of the Free Software community, including the very people who wrote Novell's own system, for Novell's sole financial beneift, according to Bruce Perens. Join Perens in signing an open letter to Novell's CEO Ron Hovsepian. "As the agreement stands today, it betrays the authors of the software you re-market and their users worldwide for Novell's sole commercial benefit."

This is not particularly true.

I like to make money but I wouldn't like to be rich. Call me what you will but that's how I feel.

All I want in life is enough free time, enough money for a living (and that's really not much, in particular I'm happy with my current situation) and most importantly peace of mind. I don't want to be bothered just to make some additional cash. If someone came to me "you can make big bucks but you'll have to be ready to jump any time any day" I'd say "suck my balls!" and go listen to some nice soothing music.
