I really do not have much to say about this topic, but one point does
come to mind. When I first heard about Ubuntu, in the breezy badger
days I didn't think it would pan out to much, because it felt like linux
met religion. In fact it was just the opposite, not religion,
community. Anyway there should be a distinction between religion and
state, same applies to linux. My operating system don't come to church
with me every Sunday.....
But then again that is just an opinion. :)
