Comment of the Day - November 23, 2005 - The Sky is not Falling
I am likely endangering myself - and this is my
first LXer posting ever - by saying; things are not as bad as you might
think. Yes, M$ is embedding (entrenching?) itself as it always has, but
Open Source is - literally - something you can not stop. It is as
persistant as (bad comparison) warez. Open Source is here to stay. It
really will not matter (and it has not in the past) what M$ - or anyone
for that matter - does. This has been proven time and again - over and
You would like an example? Great! I have been interviewing (and getting
my arse handed to me I might add) mostly on the Open Source angle. What
I have learned, other than I am inadequate, is that Open Source is
incredibly alive. I have literally been in interviews (for once) where
they all sort of cringe when I mention anything proprietery.
Yes, these are bad things, but they have been attempted before; they
were also refuted. Have faith and just keep using Open Source: this is
the way - not bullywarking.
