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."

I am sure Mr.Carmony is hoping that his piece is making people reconsider being so much against these type of deals. By exaggerating the 'split' which many people would see as a bad thing in general, he's hoping to sway people to be milder towards the companies that are entering into deals with MS. Personally, I don't see any dangers from boycotting these companies.
