LinuxPlanet: Editor’s Note: The Smaller the Cage…

“Penguinistas by and large are a stubborn group. Overall, this
trait has been a good thing: you don’t stare down a big corporation
like Microsoft and prevail without having a fairly prominent streak
of stubbornness.”

“Sometimes, however, this stubbornness manifests itself in some
fairly unattractive ways. There’s a certain kind of penguinista
who is fairly exclusionary of who can play in the Linux sandbox:
exclusionary to the point where only the truest of the true
believers are allowed entry.

“This holier-than-thou has manifested itself recently in the
form of pointed comments made about the appropriateness of Sun
Microsystems and SCO being embraced as participants in the Linux
field.”
