I just don't know no better, less offending word in english, sorry if I offended anyone.
Zealot is also wrong, more "opensource knight". "Zealot" - does not reflect the fact that FLOSS stands for open, transparent, fair world. "Knight" does.
I think our central problem lays essentially within dependency upon hardware base, that is requires proprietary if seeking performance.
We are all *slut* to them, they move a finger, we get conflicts, flames, ground-breaking adhoc decisions, and in the end its FLOSS loosing.
Example: MS claims secureboot for ENTIRE x86 and every hardware vendor magically agrees. Linux newbies now have hard times to even try the system.
Example 2: Mono patent trojan.
Example 3: Only Intel doing corporate opensource support (although not complete one).
We are sitting on the tree, that belongs mostly to proprietary pimps. They kick the tree slight, dozens of us falls off.
GNU project to create an Operating System, not application software was exactly due the need for stable base. The hardware itself was not this proprietary back then. Now, it is.
If we don't realize this, we are doomed to play catch-up games and burn resources for the rest of the time.
