A patriotic snippet from another lock-stepper: "I quickly discovered though, that in many cases, not all the players in the field of computer software were

technology. And, that technology was available to me under licensing agreements that forbid me to study and
learn from it. I was completely prohibited from viewing the program source code of the software." More at LinuxToday.
