Since this has turned into an OT (yet again), I'd like to specify an incident.
RMS came to our company in Bangalore and he gave a speech on freedom
and free software.
He asked the audience to stop using cellphones, because they're
proprietary and they can detect where you are. He said that he doesn't
have a cellphone, but he suggested to use a cellphone that is open
sourced. A person kept a bottle of Kinley water next to him, he said
that he doesn't use Coca-Cola products because he is part of the
wordwide boycott of that company. He said that sometimes he doesn't
drink a drop of water while travelling in flight because the flight
served only coca-cola products.
So, I hope true believers of freedom don't drinking coca-cola
products, don't use iphone, blackberry, (symbian is opensourced,
yay!), windows, mac osx, adobe products, mp3 songs, dvd movies, divx
movies, don't play flash games, video games based on windows, nvidia,
don't use microsoft docs, hell they shouldn't be even using google
docs. Reject .Net projects at work, Infact, we should have the guts to
quit the company where we work because they use only windows. Actually
you should throw your desktop/laptop (while you are at it, make sure
you break & burn it) because the bios used is proprietary.
lets all practice what we preach.
Apologies for the troll, had this stuck in my neck for so long.
