post 2: Why I am doing this = GandhiCon3
All of that has changed.
I feel like I'm on top of mountain watching a few pebbles shift. I can feel the avalanche coming. I see many causes in motion. Microsoft's current business practices are the wind that gives speed to the pebbles. All I am doing here is delivering a notice that unless several of these causes halt soon, the change will come exponentially in an yielding fashion.
In a way, I am more than just an observer. With my work with The Ohio Linuxfest the fruits are not measurable. Even if bug one wasn't communicated, I would still be a free software idealist who is happy to see what is afoot.
The facts will come out more in future posts but I am sure that Microsoft feels threatened. It's GandhiCon3 time. As Eric Raymond pointed out "First they ignore you. Then they laugh at you. Then they fight you. Then you win."
