As for windows domination, I have only one thing to say:

Four score and seven years ago Linus Torvalds has brought forth a new opera=
ting system,
conceived on university campus and dedicated to the proposition that free s=
oftware is
a good thing. Now our island of open source software that is under attack.

We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in France, we shall fight on the =
and the oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength=
 in the air,=20
we shall defend our Island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the=
 beaches, we
shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the=
 streets, we=20
shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.
