I thought this was an excellent article. Saw it on Linsux.org, believe it or not. But, it really strikes true this time, something that can't be ignored.Ladies and gentlemen, sit down. You have all been taken advantage of in the worst manipulative mental carnival imagineable.
FUD. We all know the term. Wikipedia states it as: "Fear, uncertainty and doubt (FUD) is a tactic of rhetoric used in sales, marketing, public relations, and illiberal democracies. FUD is generally a strategic attempt to influence public perception by disseminating negative (and vague) information."
For the longest time, this tactic has been largely connected with Microsoft. Free Software advocates have lashed out against these unfair statements, in an attempt to maintain a fair playing field.
There is one site, however, that tries to "play dirty" with Microsoft, and Novell. Enter the era of double-standards and ********. BoyCott Novell is the unsatisfied FUD-mongerer's answer to corporations.
