Linux Today - Editor’s Note: What Linux Can Do That Those Big Proprietary Innovators Can’t

I am bored. Bored of the word “innovation”, and the way it is bandied about by every tech vendor. I don’t know how they keep straight faces, maybe they actually believe their own bushwah. There are very few that demonstrate any actual innovation. I would say that Apple leads the industry; Intel, AMD, and Google are also on my “actually push the boundaries and do neat new things” list. Our favorite software monopolist innovates new extremes of bullying, thuggery, and extracting top dollar for overlapping licenses and pooware, so I don’t think that rates inclusion.

I have another list, and this is a much more fun list. It is a large list that is always growing. We could also include the free BSDs- FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD, whose contributions to Linux and FOSS are well-deserving of more recognition. This is “What Linux Can Do That Those Big Ole Proprietary Innovators Can’t”.
