Linux Advocate Fired for Hating Microsoft

September 9, 2002

Balancing Linux and Microsoft

Bruce Persens , open-source advocate, slashdot member , and (now former) HP employess; has been fired for his statements against Microsoft. Pretty much, the HP/Compaq merger did him in. When your new company is the largest Microsoft and Linux shop in the world, I could only imagine the M$ goons going in and trying to oust some of the linux supporters in the company.

I should also add, that I use Epson and Lexmark printers.
