Well my take is that if you read the entire lawsuit, which I have, it seems that due to the timeline of events and notification times that they framed him for what appears to be misconduct in order to save from having to pay his fee, which was agreed on in writing and contractual. It seems he was going from Pro 6 to Pro 7 which suggests that he was definitely bringing in enough revenue to justify his pay. Unless he actually did the heinous things they allegate but not specify and they were royally upset with him, not sure, only because I do not know him personally and refuse to get caught up with speculation.
I would only hope that if he was wrongfully terminated he will come join my group in Ariix and do great things, for sure I can say that the Ariix Bill of Rights would prevent a similar chain of events with that timeline to occur!
and so the joke is on….us? iPhone is obviously Linux of Unix. Android is definitely Linux, no question about it. And Jobs was screaming copy copy about Google/Android and Samsung. So the open mouth is chewing on its ridges???!
I must leave Microsoft out of this article as they have historically been against Open Source, so they just don’t fit, though recent prospects seem to point they may buy or incorporate some open companies or approach soon.
It seems Linux/Unix has come full circle from the “dark days” of not having user friendly apps to where we are now: Companies scrambling for uniqueness and features abounding in a highly user friendly manner. It seems Android will not only be on phones and tablets but on the desktop of your pc in the near future! And of course all your favorite apps will just simple be there, in contrast to the Linux of yesterday, most interesting…
Now creativity must come forth to lead the pack, who will be first?
PS – I personally am using an Android phone and was ashamed of it not being an Apple iPhone until I experienced the following: Tried to help a guy setup Skype for iPad, they had released it before the release was read on iTunes, you cannot setup Skype independent of iTunes or the Apple “Cloud”. I wonder if there is anything you can do on an iPhone/iPad/Mac these days that are going to be indepedent of thier cloud, not good for me, I need a degree of autonomy, hm. Needless to say the app did not install and there was no previous version available or any choice for that matter, that point alone made me happy I am using Samsung Galaxy S II and not an Apple product, though I do feel a special connection with Steve Jobs…
I was even going to buy the new iPhone 4S as a personal tribute to the master until I experienced the above issues!
