a couple of weeks back, the news of sun being bought by oracle spread through linux comunities like wild fire. all the apps you and I took for granted now seem to face an unknown fate; Virtualbox, OpenOffice, MySQL all lie in the danger zone with the risk of being canceled.
This got me thinking about an even worse scenario, Microsoft getting one of the big guns in it’s dirty clutches. even though it seems it has Novell in it’s pocket, it isn’t as bad as owning it or any other major open source contributor.
Now what if microsoft got a hold of the Free Software Foundation…
