Re: Non FOSS and Fedora

Sam,

I'll spell it out for you. By allowing this documentation to exist on
fedoranews.org, readers are basically being told "It's ok to use and
install non-FOSS software on your computer. In fact, we'll even show you
how!".

Now I'm not going to question your views on or commitment toward FOSS
(not sure I want to know based off your reaction) but will only ask  you
to acknowledge that what I have described above is not in line with the
objectives of The Fedora Project.

"Yes, Your Honor. Now, where we are so far, in at least my
line of reasoning, is I want to walk the Court through enough of our
complaint to help the Court understand that IBM clearly did contribute a
lot of the Unix-related information into Linux. We just don't know what
it is."
