GNU/Linux: Too Much about Hate, Not Enough about Pride - page 5
To anyone active in the free software community, this list of accomplishment may seem commonplace. But perhaps that is the trouble. When you deal with something everyday, you easily take it for granted, no matter how important it may be. For this reason, it's worth reminding ourselves now and then just how impressive the community's accomplishments actually are.
All of us--even well-known figures like Linus Torvalds or Richard Stallman--only play small roles in this list of accomplishments. Yet, if you have even the slightest role, you can take pride in having assisted with something well-worth doing.
Personally, I'd like to see more of that pride and less badmouthing of Microsoft. In the end, I suspect that such pride will be more satisfying to you, and more attractive to others than a banal and outworn expression of hate.
