I live in a suburb of Budapest and T-Mobile provides everything I get from them over ip. Television, phone and internet. I wonder if this means I'd pay that tax on all of it - on top of the other taxes already being paid.
Are you aware of how Fidesz came into the position they currently hold.
Hungary ( very much like the US ) has no shortage of politicians across the left to right spectrum who are only out to enrich themselves and their friends rather than leading well to the benefit of everyone. It's sad but I don't think uncommon.
It doesn't matter how poorly it is misspelled. Gulyásleves is nothing like what Americans picture when they say goulash.
Hungary is a great place to live by the way - if you've got the cash to be comfortable.
Anyway, I have better uses of my time than to waste another minute with you.
We knew what was going on when you ran your anti-IBM campaign, sometimes even positioning yourself as arguing on behalf of our community. It was a way to lend credence to IBM and MS arguments during the SCO issue. To state otherwise is deceptive, perhaps even self-deceptive.
Florian, you would not be devoting all of this text to explaining yourself if you didn't feel the need to paint your actions in a positive light. That comes from guilt, whether you admit it to yourself or not.
Go write your app, and if you actually get to make any money with it you can give thanks, because it will happen despite what you worked for previously. Keep a low profile otherwise because your credibility is well and truly blown and you can only make things worse. And maybe someday you can really move past this part of your life. But I am not holding out much hope.
So, I see this as rationalization.
The fact is, you took a leadership position, and later turned your coat for reasons that perhaps made sense to you. But they don't really make sense to anyone else. So, yes, everyone who supported you then is going to feel burned.
You also made yourself a paid voice that was often hostile to Free Software, all the way back to the SCO issue. Anyone could have told you that was bound to be a losing side and you would be forever tarred with their brush.
So nobody is going to believe you had any reason but cash, whatever rationalization you cook up after the fact. So, the bottom line is that you joined a list of people who we're never going to be able to trust or put the slightest amount of credibility in.
And ultimately it was for nothing. I've consistently tried to take the high road and it's led to a pretty good income, I would hazard a guess better than yours, not just being able to feel good about myself.
Meh, it's easy to find people with skill. With values, OTOH...
You have a point.
yeah, the "slashdot.org" is a dead giveaway . . .
Hey, I drive a convertible, you insensitive clod!

That happened because Samba went to gpl3--and Apple holds patents.
Apple would have to fork Samba to keep gpl2.
(yes, I know that the High Church of EMACS insists that there is no risk, but that's for another thread).
