Hang on, you're saying you believe that you would trust a FSF or OSDL-funded study to be impartial? You're saying that if the FSF funded a study comparing GNU to Windows, and the study came back saying "Windows saves you money in the long term, and Microsoft's Shared Source is as good as Free Software for 99% of users", that the FSF would then be happy to publish that study?

I don't think so, and I suspect you won't either, if you pause to think about it.

Why not let Apple conduct the study... Oh wait. Thats biased too.

Point is that no one on this planet who has any experience in any form of technology is going to be able to form an unbiased opinion about any form of technology. Humans have a tendancy to draw conclusions about something the second they see it.

Journal: Well, they took the article

I'm glad they took it. Unfortunatly so many people were so mean. I sent the link to my mother so that she may read it and hopefully find some use out of it for michael. I hope she can. This whole environment he is in isnt helping him and I do wish he could read. His life would be 100% better if he could.

The more they over-think the plumbing the easier it is to stop up the drain.
