    Unhappy Open Source is Dangerous - Assult at a gas station

    Just read this blog about a guy being assulted because of his job of refurbishing computers with Linux

    Blog of helios: Tempers Flare as Recession Creeps into Tech Industry

    I am sure that it was just one guy having a bad day but it is disturbing to see where people choose to project the blame.

    I'll have to be careful next time I'm filling up... at least I don't have a pony-tail that can be used to swing me around the place though

    I know Microsoft have ran some anti-Linux campaigns, but this is taking the biscuit!

    There's been rumours bouncing around the net that Helios bloke is an attention whore not above making stuff up. No idea whether that is the case or not, but it seem strange that (in the previous case) 4chan/somethingawful/internet-in-general were unable to track down the woman involved.
