Open Source Will Never Die

Filed under
OSS

No matter how hard people or companies like SCO try, nor how muchothers believe they know the commercial market, open source will never die.

Linux, with the help of GNU software, has risen to a point where it is a legitimate threat to the throne of Microsoft. Microsoft's only goal is to have a version of the Windows operating system on every desktop, in every portable device, in every appliance -- essentially every device with a computer chip -- all over the world. Anything short of that and their job is incomplete.

Meanwhile, SCO have just recently tried to take everyone who uses Linux, and their penguins, to court. Despite continued net losses in the millions every quarter, and declines in revenue, they continue to wage a futile war against Linux and Open Source.

There's a big corporate game being played, and every user of Linux, and every advocate of Open Source, watches events such as these unfold with great interest.

Full Story.

What a long and poorly edited rant from a budding fortune teller.

Now if only he'll tell us what the next set of Powerball numbers will be.

//Never is a long time. And people who make sweeping statements that use the word "never" are usually hacks, quacks, or liars that seldom turn out to be correct.
