If MS are Lions, and Apple are leopards, then I'd say Free Software is
Fungus -- capable of taking their excrement and turning it into
something useful, while otherwise growing at it's own pace, largely
indifferent to the activities of the live-fast die-young corporations.
Admittedly, Microsoft are now trying to use the patent system as
fungicide, but I think the wider population are waking up to just how
toxic that stuff is for everyone, especially when misused.
