The truth behind the Microsoft-Open Source fight

Author: JT Smith

From ZDNet's AnchorDesk: "The upsurge in free software, represented by Linux and the intense media attention to licensing
issues, is a valid reaction to a company that has achieved too much dominance. This is an
anti-Microsoft backlash, plain and simple. You can see more than a hint of the protests that
have been taking place lately whenever the world's economic powers have gathered.

However, the solution isn't to dismantle the current way of doing things and replace it with
something that, over time, will become equally oppressive."
