Open Source developers threaten to strike

"Taking a cue from Major League Baseball players, several hundred free software developers have threatened to go on strike, setting a deadline of September 5 at which time they will step away from their keyboards until their demand is met.

"We've had a enough of this crap," said one of the 511 coders that have banded together to form the Union of Professional Software Developers Producing Amateur Half-Finished Open Source Programs. "Unless we get some satisfaction, I hope to take a nice long vacation away from my terminal -- well, at least for a few days until my Quake addiction strikes back."
