So, there's been a lot of discussion about free-market capitalism with the current financial crisis. I'm definitely for it, but there are a lot of other opinions.
One of the most common complaints is that free-markets squash good ideas and fight morality.
Mike Masnick wrote a great piece about this at Techdirt. (Yeah, I know i link to Techdirt a lot, it's that good.) I'd suggest you go and read it.
I'll be offering some of my thoughts regarding the operating system wars pretty soon.
