No. Hate is definitively the wrong way to propagate FLOSS.
It should be a "together", not an "against each other". (Counts for
the the big companies, too, though. IMHO parts of Microsoft and Apple
are on the right way already.)
Look what Microsoft and Apple's is doing with Android. And for any task
with WP7, you have to have propitiatory applications which're only
available for mac/Win to do even the simplest task with the phones. And
this's just 1 e.g.; look at their site, they're always doing .NET and
Sliverlight to break compatibility. Not the mention the 60000 software
Do you call that the right track?
Your philosophy may be good for you all but I tend to deal them with
more aggression to combat their lust for money and power. We couldn't
have stopped WW2 without the atomic bomb, so peace is not always the
right way and that's exactly why they're so successful.
