I am in New York at the Desmond Tutu conference center’s main hall surrounded by stock exchange people, CEOs, CTOs, bank managers, and lots of big city, big business people. Our meeting is taking place in a large hall that looks exactly like the halls of Hogwarts, a long echoy hall with ornate woodwork, chandeliers, the tinkling clang of china plates and ornate silverware, the works.
At this moment I am listening to Jon Corbet, editor of LWN.net, One of his slides pointed out that we should :
“Avoid uncooperative companies”
I could see everyone around me going through the list in their minds of which companies that see as “uncooperative” in supporting Linux.
I won’t name any.
