Citate care reflecta destul de fidel starea de fapt:
“Yes, and of course there is huge money to be made out of the OLPC.
OLPC is the american challenger in the race to beat the Chinese to
this particular market. And it is about money, from all sides. The
children are just mentioned to make everone feel good.”
“Red Hat (and a number of other linux distros) are morally bankrupt.”
“I believe it says exactly what is going on with Red Hat – they wish
to bring the community on with the belief that this is a free software project
and it is not. The fact that it may in fact run a linux kernel has no
bearing on it. They might as well be running windows.”
“and these projects are just freakin’ filled with hypocrisy. To
them they’ll attempt to be truly open until money, power, glory, or
some other motivation enters the picture.”
Da – e vorba de bani. OLPC inseamna bani si reclama pentru RedHat, dar faza cu “They might as well be running windows” nu o inteleg.
“Red Hat (and a number of other linux distros) are morally bankrupt.” – nu sunt fan RedHat, nici nu-i spurc, dar adevarul e ca fara ei şi Novell ne-ar fi tare greu. Unul din motivele pentru care BSD nu este nici măcar cu 40% la fel de răspândit ca Linux este faptul că nu există firme mari ”to back it up”. Firme cu bani.
