Amidst the great success of GNU/Linux and FOSS, now is the time to band together and protect the community that provides the future of technology for all of us.
There are companies out there, including coercive monopolists that aim to put an end to the "community FREE software" that is GNU/Linux/FOSS. Why? Because it obliterates their business model by being better.
Certain companies, especially those who are THE ONLY CHOICE at your local computer store, are busy forecasting that the wave of planetary-scale of community driven, FOSS/GNU/Linux software will crush their restrictive ways forever. These closed-minded, greed-driven control-artists are using last ditch efforts to SUE their way to success and remain in monopoly control of certain markets.
It's a signal for the rest of us, who are steadfast in our dedication to Technology and the future of humankind to stand united in the fight against restriction. Now is the time to act! Now is the time to band together, and crush those who seek to clamp down on the movement of technology, and thus retarding progress for all of us.
What will take us from this spaceship (the earth) to a new one and beyond? Technology, that's what. And with companies who want to restrict the flow of progress to that which compares to a sand trickle in an hour glass, they must be pushed aside!
How many companies/institutions/organisations/groups/individuals out there use GNU/Linux/FOSS to deliver information/solutions/results/cures? Many, the world over.
This is an open letter to anyone who has ever benefited from the collective effort that is GNU/Linux/FOSS, stand up and join the group!! Fight against those who are trying to patent musical notes, mathematics, and progress!! Create a coalition to put these large, aggressive, monopolistic companies at bay so that technology can achieve the level necessary to take humans beyond planet earth.
GNU/Linux/Foss has come a very long way thus far... It must be protected against the onslaught of privatization, greed, and monopoly! It's time to expire the business model of market control by monopoly over technology. Influence progress, level the playing field, advance competition and achievement over trickery and abuse of our patent system! Your help is needed. The time is now!
