"The formation of Linuxcare, and its mission gave essential
marketing credibility to the Open Source model (and to Linux in
particular) at a critical time in the development of the enterprise
market. It gave IT managers a place to go for help in their
intrepid task of introducing Linux into their large corporate
environments. So I view it as essential that this firm, (or another
that can make and execute a workable business model for this
vision), to survive."
"Linuxcare gives credibility that, if something breaks, help
is available (on a more cost-effective basis than from MS), and
gives IT managers the chance to actually train their staffs in
skillsets not wedded to a treadmill. In a system that works without
reliance on secret code."
"Linux offers stuff that works. With MS platforms, it's an
excuse a minute, bogus error messages, intentionally arcane and
obscure conventions, closed-source, peonage and enslavement both
virtual and real, for individuals, systems, nations, and the
enterprise. That's why I say it is crucial that Linuxcare, or
something very much like it, survive."
