Linux

What I am continually amazed to find in much of the Linux community, however – at least here on Google+ -- is an atmosphere of personal venom and attacks.

Case in point: The site Linux Advocates.

I co-founded this site with Dietrich Schmitz earlier this year, motivated by the belief that there were woefully few places in which Linux advocates (which we both are) could discuss the state of Linux rationally and critically – in which we're not bound by the agendas of advertisers or others with irrevocably vested interests.

It seems, however, that those with interests in this community can't abide to have objective questions asked.
