Vote W '04

Vote for the only pro-GNU/pro-OSS candidate whose policy advisor
publicly gave support to the cause.

The topic of open-source software typically evokes strong, and often
polarized, reactions from technology buyers and sellers. A LinuxWorld
roundtable proved the public sector is no exception.

"There's a healthy competition unfolding before us between proprietary
and open-source software," Phillip Bond, the U.S. Commerce Department's
under secretary for technology, said during Thursday's roundtable. "It's
good from a policy perspective to let markets decide what they want."
There's cool screensavers and lots of punk shit here:

Bleah.

While I laud Bush's choice for OSS solutions, I cannot say I agree
with him on other things, such as abortion, fiscal solvency, and
war in Iraq. I'll have to research the Dem's platforms to see
if they say anything at all regarding this issue (one would hope
they at least pursue various DoJ actions against you-know-who),
or maybe just punt and go Libertarian, which is a de-facto vote for
Bush in some respects because of our crazy politics: had Nader
not run in 2000 we might now be blaming President Gore for 2001-09-11.

But there's no way to know, is there? He's not running in 2004.

We'll see.

Followups to a slightly more logical group. :-)
