Linux Gary Richmond at Freesoftware Magazine looks at Acer's Aspire One, the latest ultra portable laptop computer to feature GNU/Linux. It runs Linpus Linux Lite, a hacked version of Fedora 8. At last we have a version of Linux not tainted with the kernel source code issues and GPL violations that characterised Xandros on the Asus EeePC.

So he doesn't mind proprietary stuff being used, as long as the vendor hasn't made any "shabby deals" to do so legally?


I guess you don't know what the deal was about... MS is saying that Linux infringes some of its patents, nobody knows what they are...

that kind of deal and licencing some plugins/codecs are completely different things...
