This is not true. Compaq have recently released large amounts of source
code to XFree86, for example. What is true is that Compaq are less into
actually writing code and more into "Give them that stuff on the floor over

I've always been mad I know I've been mad like the most of us are             
Pretty hard to explain why you're a madman even if you're not mad
