"A short while ago I was sifting through some online articles about Linux stuff, and I came across an editorial which dealt with a manager making a comment about Open Source and suggesting that the OS be insecure because anyone could read the source code. I thought perhaps this willful ignorance is just the symptom of a deeper illness."
"How many times have we come across Information Technology managers who say the problem with Linux is that you don't have anyone to sue if something goes wrong?"
"Think about that for a moment. These are people saying that the most appropriate reaction to a problem in the "problem-solving profession" is to look for someone to blame."
"How appropriate is that?"
