ZDNet's Henry Kingman has a Pogo moment as he meets the enemy and discovers it isn't Microsoft, it's the need to dominate computing... Linux enthusiasts who didn't catch the tongue-in-cheek part of "world domination," included:
"While a lot of Linux and free software creators are probably just motivated to write good code, I think others really hope to free the computing industry and all computer users from the kind of bullying and domination that Microsoft has exemplified. They seek to do this not by turning the tables on Microsoft and themselves dominating the industry and the users. That's absurd--you can't dominate anything by letting people take stuff for free. Rather, they seek to provide for those who can't afford or just don't want to buy from a domineering company.
