maddog plots a course for Linux

Author: JT Smith

LinuxWorld asks Jon "maddog" Hall about getting paid to be a Linux evangelist: "Linux evangelism means going out and promoting the Linux operating system. This is different from
promoting open source or even free software. While I am a fan of both of those myself, I do not agree that all
applications have to be open source, nor do I agree that all applications have to be freely available. I do feel very
strongly that all platform code necessary for an application to run (including compilers and even some debugging
tools) should be both freely available and open source."
