I do not actually agree with this, for the record.  I think that the
Linux commitment to Free Open Source Software (not sure what the 'L'
stands for in Mark's acronym) can sometimes hold it back...
encouraging proprietary software vendors to develop for Linux,
alongside the Open Source community, is - imho - something we should
be doing, rather than letting "the purists" put them off.    Because
it is often these proprietary vendors who have the software (at the
time) that people want to use, and why should we let Microsoft steal
even more of a march because we say "sorry, Gran Turismo isn't going
to be available on this because..." (discuss!)
