The Market Loves Linux (That's Why It's Thriving)

An excellent article about GNU/Linux and Freedomware from a libertarian perspective (which I personally share).

A great excerpt:

Daniel Coleman wrote:

The Linux community embodies a fantastic spirit of voluntary association, which should be cited more often by libertarians as an example of how cooperation benefits everyone. Anti-capitalist interlocutors often make the assumption that libertarians would actually prefer a world chalk-full of toll booths and pay-as-you-go schemes for things that are currently free! (This kind of twisted thinking led to one Microsoft official labeling Linux as a kind of "communism." Fortunately, these remarks have been thoroughly debunked elsewhere – Linux is capitalist!)
