GNU/Linux is perfect for corporate domination

They say that the world is heading the way of global 
monopolies ; they say economists have warned that these
monopolistic situations (defined as 4 or 5 firms controlling
50-60% of the products/services sold in a market) already
exist in most domestic US markets ; and now, some global
markets. The ignorant public, easily distracted by simple
ideas repeated over and over, thinks in terms of an only 
one-company monopoly, without realizing how price fixing and 
joint ventures greatly reduce competitiveness, certainly without
taking stock of how many mergers have happened in recent time.
Every corporation wants to be one of the top five, 
every corporation wants to merge and have joint ventures
and take over smaller enterprises just like Microsoft,
Autodesk, and the rest have. Now that Linux, the
smallest commercial venture of them all, has been hijacked
by the likes of IBM and other monopolistic players,
the small-time punks who started Linux and the open source
movement can be safely ignored; maybe some will sell out
entirely but who can trust them?. They are relics of a bygone 
era. Onward corporate warriors to profits and monopoly!
Viva GNU/Linux!
