One of the trolls threw this in a comment about building share for GNU/Linux:
““Have a supply of GNU/Linux installation CDs available on a moment’s notice”
Maybe include a rootkit or keylogger to see how well it is being used later.”
I do not think the troll gets GNU/Linux. FLOSS is about sharing and trust. Debian GNU/Linux has a well-defined social contract in addition to the GPL and other Free Software licences used in the distribution. If, after all that a person does not trust a CD marked “Official Debian GNU/Linux” (“Official images are built by a member of the Debian CD team and have undergone some testing to ensure they work. Once they have been released, the images never change – if they turn out to be broken, a new set with a different version number is released..“) one can check the md5sums of individual packages or whole images. If you want to go past that, you can examine all the sources and build your own installation CDs. That is a huge job… Give thanks that Debian GNU/Linux takes care of it.
Of course, we know that other OS phones home. I will stick with GNU/Linux.
