"What is the end result if SSSCA passes? It starts
bleak, and gets bleaker. For starters, Linux is outlawed.
...But that's not the worst of it.
Linux won't be banned in Europe, India, Ireland, Australia, or
Mexico. As the United States retreats into technological
inferioriority, those countries will continue their march into the
future. The world's programmers will learn and progress while
American programmers learn ever more arcane ways to circumvent
Windows glitches. Like never before, the United States will lose
technologists in a brain drain to Europe, India, Ireland, Australia
and Mexico. In 10 years might we be seeing U.S. programmers
captured at the border trying to sneak into Mexico?"
