Bryan Masinick on Libranet

Bryan Masinick writes about Libranet.

For the record, Libra Computer Systems the company has been around since 1984. The Libranet GNU/Linux project was started in 1999.

As for turning over Libranet as a community project, I'm not going to do anything in this direction yet. My first preference is to have Libranet continue as a commercial product. If you look at open source projects that are doing well you will find that, with few exceptions, they have commercial backing. Commercial interests and open source ideals don't need to be at odds with each other. Redhat, SuSE, and Mandrake are all examples of commercial open source distributions.

I hope your first choice is workable. I would sorely miss libranet linux.
