Is Gary North changing opinions on Linux?September 6, 2007 at 2:44 pm | Posted in Operating Systems, Technology | Leave a comment
I previously wrote a pro-libertarian pro-Linux article. Gary North had in 2004 written anti-Linux articles, and I countered his arguments. I thought I would check to see if he had written on the issue since by a Google search on “Gary North” and Linux. While I didn’t find any updated position written by him, I did find a very different article on his website. He allowed another writer to publish a “how to switch to Linux” article which includes statements quite contrary to North’s original 2004 articles. The article is undated, but by mentioning that you can get Linux preloaded on Dell computers, the article can’t be more than a few months old.
I guess change can be thrust upon even those who still use DOS as a primary operating system. It would be interesting if he studied all the SCO vs. Linux controversies, he is usually insightful with commentary even when he is wrong.
