Sun promoting OpenOffice through pop-up ads

Why is Mozilla selling out free software?

,----[ Quote ]
| And you do realize that other manufacturers offer laptops pre-loaded with

So Mozilla gives proprietary, DRM-oriented software and hardware. Novell once
did the same with iPods got criticised (long before the deal with Microsoft).

....And then there are pro-open source people who use Macs, whose partent
company seems to /hate/ Linux.

Apple Arrogance Unleashed!

,----[ Quote ]
| But the only problem with Apple is that it has no gratitude. Or humility. Or
| generosity. Or manners.
|
| I'm a big fan of Apple products. But there's no escaping the fact that Apple
| has always been, well, arrogant. Which was fine -- their superiority complex
| has always been both partially deserved and one of the company's motivations
| to strive for better things. But in the past few months, the company seems to
| have crossed some kind of invisible line, now brazenly pissing off not just
| competitors, but its most devoted fans, closest partners and industry
| supporters. * * *
