Submission + - Buy Eric Raymond an iPod! Donate to Rockbox &

byolinux writes: Eric needs help. At LinuxWorld SF 2006, he said "We have a serious problem. Whenever I try to pitch Linux to anyone under 30, the question I get is: 'Will it work with my iPod? We are not yet as a community making the painful compromises need to achieve widespread desktop market share. Until we do, we will get locked out of more hardware." — it seems Eric needs someone to send him a virtual hug, by way of an iPod. He can plug it into his GNU/Linux computer and he'll see just how well free software can work with his new toy. Maybe he'll even add support for it in Fetchmail

Buy Eric Raymond an iPod and donate to Rockbox and the FSF at the same time!
