    That seems to be a postulate for the OSS crowd, but there is no basis for
    its being true. Any business, even one that gives things away, is going to
    suffer and die from lack of consumer interest if nothing is ever done to
    promote or advance it. Linux has no product marketing drivers, only
    implementers of rather esoteric notions. Absent Windows, it is certain that
    someone would step in to fill the void with a similar product orgainized in
    a conventional manner. That is not to say that there is any opportunity at
    all for Windows to simply vanish as is the dream of the COLA fans.

    Proprietary software packages will exist in the absence of the current owner
    just as the opportunity to write open source extensions exists. Someone at
    some price would pay for the rights to such a massive thing and business
    would go on as usual or at least go on. There is no such hope for the Linux
    fans.

    Yep.

    That's why Roy Schestowitz tries to get peoples accounts on digg, slashdot
    and Netscape terminated.

    Roy Schestowitz pretends to be a free speech proponent and friend of the
    down trodden and little guy, but nothing could be farther from the truth.

    The speech is only free and allowed when you agree with everything he is
    saying.

    Cross his path and the emails start flying to get you silenced.

    That, is a hypocrite and Roy Schestowitz is a Class A specimen.
