    Michael, I love having a centralized place to get interesting Linux/FOSS news, but could you please spend a little more time proofreading? Letting things like "being capable of being able to" get into the final draft is just plain sloppy, and it tarnishes the Phoronix name. The free software community often struggles to establish credibility, and having a high-profile news site that make such mistakes (this isn't the first one) does not help.

    I'm willing to pay an extra few dollars per month if that's what it takes.

    No, I am not an English major.

    Phoronix: The Butterfly-Amazon Open-Source Saga Continues

    Since a few hours ago when talking about how a company is ripping off open-source projects on Amazon, more information has come in. Sure, what the company is doing might be technically legal under the GPL (though in at least the case of Dangers of the Deep, not complying with the artwork's license too), but arguably unethical with the company in question. Butterfly Media is even taking screenshots from the free software projects' pages and then voiding them of their titles, but on at least one account is distributing a non-free software program in likely violation of its license...
