LinuxJournal.com has a column attacking the people attacking Linux and Open Source. "It is ironic that, by acting as a common enemy to rally against, Microsoft has probably inadvertently done more for advancing the benefits of
the Open Source movement than any other company.

market economy, market forces select the most effective option for getting a job done. When you look at it this way, open source is a set of
simple but highly evolved best practices for software development."
