Lee Schlesinger: No one nowadays objects to FOSS

I first tried Linux in a Windows virtual machine in about 2000, but I didn’t make it my primary operating system until I went to work for VA Linux in 2003. That was back when the company ran not only Linux.com but also Slashdot, SourceForge, and ThinkGeek. From 2003 to 2009 I was the executive editor for Linux.com and Newsforge.com, and after that I edited the SourceForge blog for several months.
