Quoting Paul O'Malley (ompaul at eircom.net):
> Linux can not be promoted without the existing community doing a lot
You forgot to ask whether any of us cares whether "Linux can be
promoted". I for one don't much care one way or the other. But:
> A lot more means that at times you and I must accept things that do not
> work the way we want them to.
Almost all the time, when people tell me what I "must" do as a Linux
user, they turn out upon cursory examination to be mistaken.
For example, a small stream of people continually invent bizarre reasons
why I supposedly "must" change my mind and think that proprietary
binary-only drivers in kernelspace has suddenly become a good idea.
They are mistaken.
