LinuxMonth: The real issue with LinuxOne

[ Thanks to for this link. ]

“I’ve watched the LinuxOne saga unfold. It’s not the first time
that a member of the Linux community has been accused of profiting
off the work of volunteers – and won’t be the last. I’ve watched
discussions about RedHat, Caldera, Mandrake, VA Linux, and Corel on
various mailing lists; all accused of profiting – which, indeed,
they do. Those discussions come up for a while then die down. The
LinuxOne debate has persisted and stayed rather negative. Why?”

“Contribution. It’s that simple….”

The problem is the community perception that LinuxOne is
looking to make a large quantity of money off the community without
a corresponding level of contribution.
