Re: <nettime> R.I.P.: The Counterculture Aura of Linux

I think they're grieving an irrelevant issue here. SCO lawsuit is specked with
uncertainties in regards to their claims and even motives for that matter. If
they want to get properly informed they should read the May issue of Fortune,
they seem to have a proper skinny on the matter.

As for the counter culture aura of Linux, I truly don't understand the appeal of
the counter here. Would you rather have a hacker owned system that nobody
understands and pay for Windows so your kids can finish their homework?

Don't forget, there are many flavours of Linux, if you feel like f***ing off
just use slackware or build your own with Linux from scratch project.
