Linux's future lies in its community's hands
Picture a future devoid of all happiness and freedom. The poor are scrounging for pennies and pieces of bread to survive on, while the rich are lounging in front of lavish fireplaces, smoking on expensive humidors, grinning. What self respecting businessman wouldn't be proud of himself for surviving the few years of turmoil during early and mid oughts? After all, they were the ones who survived those troubled times by sticking with the corporations and fighting off the open source epidemic. Now those poor Linux-loving hippies are starving to death, wishing they had sided with the big Scrooge, Bill Gates.
