Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"There's the SCO attack against Linux. It drags on still. It's
been set back so many times, any sane entity would have given up by
now. But it won't end until the very last possible penny.
"There's the couple who tried to sue Google for taking their
picture in StreetView. Thrown out, of course. Who could possibly
have not seen that coming?

"Welcome to the new century, people! You do not own your media.
You do not even own your own image if you're out in public view.

computers and mobile devices the way they want to use them. You
sold it, they'll use it. Six-point-seven billion humans on this
planet want to do what they want to do when they want to do it, and
as long as they aren't hurting anyone, there's nothing you can do
to stop that."
