Linspire Kevin Carmony, CEO of Linspire, writes: "With the recent news of several Linux vendors entering into partnership agreements with Microsoft (Novell, Linspire, Xandros), there has been much debate recently about two factions of Linux forming. Saying that Linux is going to be torn in two, makes for good press and lively debates, but this is certainly nothing new for Linux."

You are NOT Linux. You do NOT speak for the Linux community. The Linux community could give two shits as to whether you are meeting you bottom line. The Linux community does NOT need your assistance in improving adoption. If you cannot make money off Linux without selling out and giving the competition legal ammo to attack the community then don't let the doorknob get stuck in your a** on the way out.

Right on. Here, Here! You said everything I wanted to say but far more eloquently than I would have put it. Carmony is a sell out and not just because of this deal but because he created a distro called lindows. Real original pal.
