"It's A Mistake For Brazil To Build Their Own Linux" - Michael Robertson

Michael Robertson, CEO of Linspire explains why in the article below. I don't really agree with Mike on this one! I don't think that governments building their own Linux based OSes is a BIG mistake! After all, governments all over the world are already building their own software applications and some of them even sell their applications commercially to businesses and other governments. Open source is definitely the better way to do it on the OS level and having control over your code is definitely a big plus! If you disagree, let me know via the comments section or by email!
