Opinion: New Linux users need to learn etiquette
Author: JT Smith
From OSopinion: "If the Linux community is to survive, it must educate these new users in etiquette. They must be taught to appreciate the fact that much of the software they take for granted came to them for free. Just as are forefathers sacrificed for our freedom, new Linux users need to be reminded that thousands of man-hours were spent perfecting the software they are now using; they should thank Linus Torvalds, Alan Cox, Richard Stallman et al in their /etc/cron.daily prayers."
