Thanks for this episode! I like that attitude towards MS, i.e. let them have their strategies and marketing but don't let this distract through fear and anger. Rise above it. Linux people should continue to be the best by begin welcoming to users and continue to be the most creative IT community. Keep with the humility and openness. (Back when I worked for SUN Microsystems, I was irritated by the animosity between databases engineers and Java programmers. It was quite childish.)
