Freedom fighters cracked Microsoft?

Author: JT Smith

Without any evidence whatsoever, Salon.com suggests the Open Source community has a motive: "The antagonistic dynamic that exists between
Microsoft and free-software hackers is
unavoidably obvious to anyone who has been
following the growth of open-source software
over the past few years ... In
Europe, distaste for and distrust of
out-of-control American capitalism are widely
acknowledged motivating forces for
free-software hacking. Open vs. proprietary -- it's the good vs.
evil foundation of the hacker worldview. Hatred of Microsoft
keeps some hackers up at night, plotting their own software-led
world domination."
