"Ubuntu is not really as grand a Linux distro as the propaganda leads us to believe," writes Jim Morgan, "but it did open my eyes to the issue of freedom. It forced me to consider my beliefs. As an American we chant freedom as some sort of mantra. We always talk about freedom but sometimes I wonder if we really know what it means. A big case in point for me is the fascist crap that goes on in the airports.
