This is a bunch of bullshit. All you you zealots need to stop equating
this with a fucking civil liberties issue. It's not one. Grow the fuck
up. It's time to get over the notion that any of this isn't
financial. It's only about money. Just like the fact that Linus works at
Transmeta is only about money. Linux has been available to the highest
bidder for several years now. It's just that everyone has conned you into
thinking it's still free, so that you continue to producing code free of
charge.
