Submission + - What We Know For Sure on Linux's 20th Anniversary (linux.com)

jennifercloer writes: Jim Zemlin writes: Linux continues to prevail and today is the largest collaborative development project in the history of computing. This is because of one fundamental principle: Freedom. Richard Stallman helped us understand long ago what freedom means as it relates to software: the freedom to use the software for any purpose, to change the software to suit your needs, to share the software with friends and neighbors, to share the changes you make to the software. These ideas today are the fundamental building blocks for making the world’s best software and enabling innovation across industries and around the globe.

So what do we know for sure today, on the 20th anniversary of Linux? That we are on the right side of history. That products and technologies come and go but freedom endures. And because of that, we know that Linux will be the fabric of computing for decades to come.

Realize this, you will have to cut our quality of life down to equal or _less_ than China's in order to bring our products down to their prices. Is this something you're seriously willing to propose?

What you're willing to propose and what is going to happen are sometimes two completely different things.
