I think I just melted my irony meter. The radically innovative new plan at VA Linux is to reach profitability by selling proprietary software. (Larry Augustin has invented Microsoft!) But not just any software; they're going to sell the software which operates SourceForge, one of the largest repositories of open source software in the world. And this is now going to become the core business; they may even change the company name. I can't wait to see what the folks on SlashDot think of this! (VA Linux also operates SlashDot.)
Fat chance. Since when do these four companies have the ability to prevent anyone else from creating yet another version? (Also, conspicuous by its absence from this story is Corel.)
This brings taking revenge on your compute to a whole new level. Like twelve kilovolts.
