Still Clueless over Free Software

The End of Idealism "...a lot of the intellectual property in Linux is actually owned by companies that never officially agreed to make it available under an open-source license. Most obvious here is The SCO Group...But there are others, including Microsoft, that could do the same if they chose. "

"The most successful open-source movement prior to Linux was the hacker movement—not exactly the kind of folks that corporate decision-makers want associated with their platform software."

This still proves that there is still a lot of ignorance (or if you're paranoid maybe corporate sponsored fear, uncertainity and doubt) about free software.
