Boycott IBM!

Click here to find out why:

I will never purchase another IBM product. They'd have to sign these patents over to the Linux foundation or some other sturdy FOSS organization before I'd even consider buying from them again, which I know is a bit pie in the sky. I hope you feel the same way. Boycott IBM! In 2005, they promised not to do EXACTLY what they are doing now, and they need to be reminded that FLOSS is an important part of their revenue.
