Do not associate with or mix Linux and communism. Do not say that making a
living or advertising a business is anti-OSS. If everybody advocated that
point-of-view, how would a living be made? Many of us Open Source
programmers have day jobs and, let us face it, they serve a business that
advertises and often pays for commercial software licences. This verges a
whole big essay, so let's save it for now...
