Why LinuxHater Blog Could Be a Microsoft Front

H

ave a look at this blog post (English translation here). It's about some obscure blogger that goes by the identity 'LinuxHater' and once attacked us. A while ago, Jeremy Allison, whom we trust, brought some more attention to this anonymous blog. There was a rebuttal to it.

“Watch this recent post about Maureen O'Gara and Microsoft agents coordinating a sabotage against Linux (OSDL) on the Web.”Why did Allison advocate this? Miguel de Icaza recommended this site at least twice in his personal blog. Does he encourage attacks on technical merits of Free software? It ought to be added that Carla Schroder at Linux Today recently linked to this pest (Allison's and de Icaza's endorsements surely did not help, did they?), but she got slammed for it by at least one reader. More rebuttals have just come that are arguing against this Web site, which is, oddly enough, run by incognito. Another Linux-slamming site might be Planète Béranger, but he is not troll and he was never anonymous. it's just his style to rant (about virtually everything).

Regarding that 'LinuxHater' character (or pseudo character), one reader told us that he is "extremely selfish and arrogant or... in fact is so technically good because "he" is actually a front for a set of people machinating to poison programmers (who value technically good arguments, frequently disregarding any ethical arguments) against GNU/Linux." Watch this recent post about Maureen O'Gara and Microsoft agents coordinating a sabotage against Linux (OSDL) on the Web. None of this is far fetched and the phenomenon by all means exists. Lastly adds our reader, regrading persistent attacks against critics of 'LinuxHater': "Th[ere] is circumstantial evidence, of course, but very suggestive of a connection."
