[News] Effective GNU/Linux Advocacy is Action

Hash: SHA1

Help Spread Linux… Don’t Preach It!

,----[ Quote ]
| Long story short, the lesson seems to be that waving something in someone’s 
| face is more likely to come off as rude and nagging, instead of capturing 
| their interest as you hope to do. While trying to spread the perks of Linuxis 
| a totally legitimate and an encouraged pursuit, one can’t expect to have too 
| much luck with it by decking passers-by in the street with LiveCDs and 
| harassing colleagues with stories of how perfect Linux is and pouncing to 
| point out Vista’s flaws every time they encounter UAC asking for their 
| permission to do something.       


"The government is not trying to destroy Microsoft, it’s simply seeking to
compel Microsoft to obey the law. It’s quite revealing that Mr. Gates equates
the two."

Linux For The Masses? Bet On This Winner.

| With Linux on the desktop going from a slow crawl to verging on an explosion, 
| many have toiled with the question: How do we make this happen faster? A 
| well-known Austin-based Linux Advocate thinks he has the answer.  


Who Fouled My Carpet...?

| It only took me a few minutes to notice it. It would seem that the Freespire 
| people have been given their marching orders and I would Like Eric Raymond to 
| comment if he is allowed. I can understand why Linspire would have to bow to 
| the Microsoft Collusion but why Freespire? Now I know that Linspire is 
| expected to dance to Microsoft's tunes...If I calculate correctly, 5 top 
| Linspire executives entered their Linspire employment weighing 3 lbs less 
| than they did when they left.      
| That extra weight was from the 30 pieces of silver each carried out when they 
| abandoned the infested ship at the end of the MS Deal. (thank you Stephen J.) 

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
