“FUD withers in sunlight. It only works when people lack accurate information.”

How much FUD GROKLAW deflated:
- GPL is evil/unconstitutional,
- Linux was copied from UNIX operating systems,
- The world owes SCOG, M$, and lots of other parasites per user/user/machine, etc., and
- Software Patents are good for us…
I must say I felt terribly bad when SCO claimed Linux was theirs to tax. I didn’t fully understand the world of FLOSS in those days. PJ educated all of us with thorough research and detailed legal investigations. Fortunately for the world, the courts finally saw through the smoke and mirrors to the truth. Too bad they still haven’t seen through M$’s smoke, but that gives us something for which to live.
Thanks, PJ. You have done a lot of good work and documented everything so that the search engines can pierce FUD in seconds. Thanks.
