An editorial has been posted today at Penguinista.org urging the Linux/OSS community to recognize the importance of this issue by signing the VarLinux.org petition and beginning an email campaign with the intention of pressing Internet.com and LinuxToday.com to make a public response to the charges levied. As stated in the editorial, while this may not be classified by some as Linux news, it is a community issue which must be dealt with."
