That's an OK battle, as I think anything based in some "business
ethic" is indeed a failure-prone model, and suspicious, vigilant
opposition should be encouraged. We call that "a discerning
customer". On the other hand, I think Stallman's Gnu revolution has
sparked something new in the engineering world: a stronger sense of
us all being in this together. Just the one planet, gotta make it
work, and dealing in the kids is critical.
