I think there are serious blocking going on from microsoft parties -
they have created Attachmate (consists from Apple, Oracle, MS, and few
others such sized companies), and grabbed Novell with Suse, they have
working with Nokia, and also eaten for breakfast Sun too. If anybody
tries to make linux or free software business, they will be killed by
low budget, or with patents.... and the court. Also, I think the new
message at linux conferences, where they paying out the whole
conferece will not use for open source.... We have to do something
