| These findings suggest that what enterprises are looking for ideally is a 
| project backed by a community and multiple vendors, such as the Linux kernel.

Stallman Takes His Free-Software Crusade to Argentina

,----[ Quote ]
| Mr. Stallman said he is generally a fan of the online, collaborative
| encyclopedia, but it is on the narrow grounds that befit a single-issue
| activist who has spent more than two decades preaching the cause that
| software wants to be free â- âfree as in freedom, not free as in beer.â
| Translation: Itâs not necessary that software be cheap, but once someone owns
| it, she should be free to do with it what she pleases.
| This principle is true for Wikipedia, in that anyone is free to reuse its
| contents in any way he likes, as long as he follows the same ethic with a new
| product and credits Wikipedia. That applies to a blogger as well as to
| companies that have created businesses around Wikipedia content, including
| one publishing house that has republished German Wikipedia content in book
| form while agreeing to those terms.
