Yes, we MUST fight on every front, however, we're late. Youtube is
working and popular, we need to start something soon and then keep on
improving and moving towards the most free idea. That's how the Linux
kernel was done: it started as a crappy thing and kept on growing. The
FSF approach's mach-micro-kernel is still unstable, 20 years later.
Then, putting a bit of history:
- IBM has released loads of patents for Linux and has contributed with
millions of lines of code to the Kernel, RAID, and paid big amount of
coders to improve FLOSS.
- Novell bought SuSE and Ximian. You can bet nobody did so much for the
FLOSS desktops than they.
For me, Adobe and MS are another song ;)

Sure, the ship is sinking and you only have two hands, what's first?
switching the pcs from windows to linux or patching the holes on the boat?
I already know your answer :P
