Linux "The idea that Linux is primarily a community-based project based on the work of thousands of independent, idealist hackers died a quiet death at home on March 27th. The proximate cause of death was the Linux Foundation's naming of its new board of directors. This leading non-profit Linux organization's board included many Fortune 500 executives from around the world - but not one representative from a purely community-based Linux organization."

Any article that quotes ESR -- and uses his opinions as evidence -- isn't worth reading, let alone discussing.


...funny, I feel kinda the same way about RMS<g>.

Seriously, to say that something isn't worth reading because of the author (or someone quoted in the article) is to unnecessarily limit the potential for learning.

That would be true if everyone was worth listening to. With experience, it becomes evident that that is not the case. Some people are actually wasters of time and destroyers of minds.
