A Word on Word. Ah, that sly devil!We advocates of free software don't have many friends, particularly among those fine people that would likely be our nearest and dearest save for that one fatal point of contention; we “get” open-source, free software, the importance of not only supporting this vital and progressive movement but actually learning to use the damn stuff. Our good neighbors “get” only what they pay for, and not many of our fine and noble administrators who dole out hundreds of thousands of the tax papers' hard-earned dollars want to think heretical thoughts against Microsoft, aka digital catholocism (I'll never endanger my soul by speaking ill of Pope Gates, the infallible). Microsoft must be doing something right, even if it's ensuring that the rest of us do something wrong. [Kairosnews – A Weblog for Discussing Rhetoric, Technology and Pedagogy]
