Open Source Opportunism

Care for a little cheap irony?

According to an article in eWeek (July 7) by Peter Galli, “the linux operating system has transformed the digital animation movie business over the past two years…” So, the same entertainment industry that would like very bit on the Internet to be owned and accounted for is happy to reap the benefit of the open source movement.

If, as it has been argued, the “trusted” computing initiative (AKA the Orwellian computing initiative) ends up locking out open source software even as it locks in Microsoft as the player for Hollywood’s products, we will go from cheap irony to real irony.
