Linus takes aim several powerhouses in Tech...

Linus T. took some time in a speech recently to point out some of the failings of Closed Source.  In normal Linus style he points out things like this gem about Microsoft, “Technologies that lock things down tend to lose in the end. People want freedom and markets want freedom.”  He went on to compare secure boot to Apple's DRM and how ineffective it was.  Check out this synopsis of the full speech over at ostatic.com.
