Single biggest thing holding Linux back? Vendor lock-in

,----[ Quote ]
| In trying to get more businesses to adopt Linux and open source software over 
| the past 18 years or so, I've discovered that no matter how good Linux 
| becomes, one hurdle stubbornly remains - in fact, it's the biggest hurdle 
| that Linux and free/open source will ever face: vendor lock-in.

Stallman warns against cloud computing

,----[ Quote ]
| In an interview reported by The Guardian, he said, "It's stupidity. It's
| worse than stupidity: it's a marketing hype campaign."
|
| Stallman warns that cloud computing is simply a trap to entice users' into
| entrusting their data and computing applications to proprietary systems that
| are beyond their own control and which service providers could make more and
| more expensive for users over time. He doesn't trust the vendors.
|
| "Somebody is saying this is inevitable -- and whenever you hear somebody
| saying that, it's very likely to be a set of businesses campaigning to make
| it true," Stallman said.
