FOSS defining my career

If it wasn't for Free Software I would not be in IT at all: I liked computers of the DOS era, but mostly gave them up around the time Windows ME came out.
Linux brought back the spark and open source has defined my career in IT since day 1 in college.

First of all, always act like civilized person, don't swear without need.
Second. IT would still exist, but based on what He said, He wouldn't be part of it. Does it's true? No one knows. My advice? At least try to read comments, that you answer to.

Stupid is who stupid does, as Forrest would say. Stupid in this case not understanding that he said that he wouldn’t be in IT if it wasn't for OSS. He didn't say there wouldn’t be IT without OSS.
