Even in Iran elements of secular state and democracy coexist with Sharia law and religious authority, similarly in Iran studying math and science is encouraged month both genders. I anything Islamic fundamentalist states and quasi-state entities are in the extreme minority pointing to Islam's ability to adopt to the modern world.

Systemd is the last nail in the coffin for Linux, I'm switching to *BSD> The problem with Linux I think is that unlike the BSDs it never head any real UNIX roots. It started from scratch as a UNIX-like hack in Linuse's basement, stuck with following UNIX for awhile and now it's just becoming Windows-like.

You idea if a "market success" is to sell me a binary without source. So I will be stuck depending on your crappy expensive support and early upgrade cycle (if I want any bugs fixed, as you will surely roll bug fixes into commercial upgrades). This is a problem I have, as a user, with non GPL code.
