The world doesn't fear a new idea. It can pigeon-hole any idea. But it can't pigeon-hole a real new experience. It can only dodge.
The world is full of abandoned meanings.
While the flightless bird may have been booted off Wall Street, it is being welcomed on Main Street as a dependable substitute for more expensive software sold by competitors such as Microsoft and Sun Microsystems. From auto dealers in Florida to grocery stores in the Arctic Circle, companies are using Linux to run web sites, power databases, track inventory and balance the books.
—Elise Ackerman, in the San Jose Mercury News
If you stop and look at the broader picture, in many cases Linux has gone from a novelty to something that people are starting to deploy certain types of software solutions on. It's the deployment that's quiet, but ultimately more important than the noise.
—Dan Kusnetsky, IDC
It has occurred to me that if people really knew how software got written, I'm not sure if they'd give their money to a bank or get on an airplane ever again.
Diogenes was run out of town for counterfeiting coins. Conscience is the small voice that says “someone might catch me”. Integrity can only exist in a vacuum. Cynicism should be taught in kindergarten. Have a profitable day.
When they say, “Gee it's an information explosion!”, no, it's not an explosion, it's a disgorgement of the bowels is what it is.

Redefining the role of the United States from enablers to keep the peace to enablers to keep the peace from peacekeepers is going to be an assignment.
—George W. Bush
War is God's way of teaching Americans geography.
Since we cannot know all that there is to be known about anything, we ought to know a little about everything.
So where are these imaginary earthshaking geek outlaws who laugh in derision at mere government? Well, they do exist, and they're in Redmond. The big time in modern outlaw geekdom is definitely Microsoft. The Justice Department can round up all the Al Qaeda guys they can wiretap, but when they went to round up Redmond, they went home limping and sobbing, and without a job. That is a geek fait accompli, it's a true geek lock-in. In 2001, Microsoft has got its semi-legal code in every box that matters. They make those brown-shoe IBM monopolists of the 1950s look like model public citizens.
