Distribution roundtable discussion with the @debian, @elementary and @Fedora Project Leaders -- linuxjournal.com/content/state

@debian I agree with Chris Lamb talking about the danger of melding "corporate interests" with the interests of a community distribution. I hope Debian will continue avoiding corporate interests. But I find quite disappointing his romanticized thoughts about cloud services because cloud services make Internet centralized. The future belongs to the decentralized Internet. His words about revising the definitions of free software are very disturbing.

@neoncipher @debian I see that as a need to redefine FOSS against corporations sidestepping copyleft by offering "cloud-based" services, i.e. push towards AGPL.

(btw I was definitely inspired by your avatar)
