Apologies for today’s blog entry

I found it kind of interesting that Alex put a disclaimer on the blog entry asking “Are the Open Sourcerers Selling You a Bill of Goods?” I don’t recall Sunbelt putting a disclaimer on a blog entry before. Its clear that they fear the mindless Linux horde the way a Danish Cartoon writer fears going out in public.
Is the article that controversial? I don’t think so. It just asks the mindless Linux horde to take it easy. That they should allow for the fact that an intelligent person can use Windows.
It also made me think about ‘reflections on trusting trust.’ Who has better guarantees that the software, the compiler, etc hasn’t been trojaned.
Then I got down to the end of the article and saw it was by Deb Shinder. I guess I should consider the source.
