Linux Resources: Is the Linux Community in danger?

This editorial looks at the effect of the proprietary software
world entering the Linux community.

“The next time you see an advertisement for proprietary
software, look for the hidden, underlying message. It’s almost
always something to this effect: our product will give you greater
control over problems in your life which you cannot control right
now. Whether it’s your business, communicating with friends or
drawing pictures, software is supposed to make life better. The
reality, of course, is that proprietary software has become just
another of life’s daily problems over which people have little or
no control. This leaves users of proprietary software alienated
from the very technology that is billed as a cure for their
problems.”
