I think the content is self explanatory.
Any comments and

Ogg: Lock out hackers

Dear Sirs,

I wish to inform you that 
you've just lost a reader. 
cover title "Lock out hackers" 
simply disgusts me.
The deliberate  
misuse of the term "hacker" 
org/~esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html#what_is> ) 
is not 
tolerable on a Linux 
If it  wasn't for the "hackers", you 
wouldn't be there 
making money out of free software.
Dumbing down 35+ 
years of Unix 
culture is not the way to 
make people switch to Linux, 
rather it'll 
give them the impression that 
it's all about making a 
cheap and nasty 
copy of Microsoft Windows.
