[linux-elitists] Pour out wrath upon amazon.com
Thu Mar 30 14:57:20 PST 2000
(Real elitists make sure to boast about it when Richard M. Stallman
mentions them in an interview.)
LinuxWorld: Why did you call for a boycott of Amazon, and not of
Priceline -- which is also guilty of this kind of behavior?
Richard M. Stallman: Actually, I don't know that much about Priceline.
What happened was, Don Marti [of the Silicon Valley Linux User's Group]
proposed to me that Amazon could be a good example to boycott for a
couple of reasons. One, they sell to the public; and two, they are
actually suing somebody, which makes them an egregious offender.
Another important reason: Amazon sells a product -- books -- that
people who care about the software patent issue buy a lot of.
Don Marti Join the Great American GAS OUT. Do not buy
