Can we please stop fighting FUD with FUD?
It has long been the case that proprietary software companies regularly engage in FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt) tactics against their opponents. This particularly seems to apply to MicrosoftÃ¢â¬â¢s statements about free software in general and GNU/Linux in particular. Recently IÃ¢â¬â¢ve noticed a surge in the amount of FUD going the other wayÃ¢â¬âfrom the FOSS community towards Microsoft and other proprietary software companies. Why do we feel it is necessary to fight FUD with FUD.
