The Free Software Platform

(Comments)

Aaron J. Siego thinks that porting too much open source software to Windows will kill open source on the desktop.
The fear reminded me of a conversation I had with Dwayne and Alberto in Tanzania.
I said, I don't think we should define the platform in terms of the software. I like to think of the Free Software Platform - that's what matters to me. Obviously quality and design counts, but I wouldn't have that a problem running free software applications on top of something like ReactOS. So what counts is the freedom, the license, the philosophy - and what the applications do. What's underneath isn't as important.
