A couple of weeks ago Sneak pondered the Office 2007-liveried taxis plying London’s streets, offering free rides to a lucky few. Sneak had carefully avoided hackneyed gags about Windows-powered vehicles, instead suggesting that an open-source-sponsored cab might require passengers to get out and push. This irked a few Linux lovers, including Alan D Smith: “We all know that a Microsoft cab is almost certain to crash or at the very least stop for no apparent reason. An open source cab is more likely to be free, if it breaks down will be repaired by a complete stranger, and by travelling in one at least you will have some credibility among your peers.”
So if we must travel this road, Sneak points out that for many, a Linux cab can’t carry the necessary baggage.
