Just as the anarchist approach to society has not resulted in a utopian 
state, neither will 'Linux anarchy' result in a similarly utopian OSS 
based computing estate across organisations. Rise above I say, as
agressive behaviour generally tends to make business folk wary, and 
thus be counterproductive. Of course if the intention is purely to 
irritate then thats a different matter. In my opinion a carrot is better 
than a stick.

You could always ask MS what they have in mind for the resultant Novell 
fork of Linux if it is ruled Novell are not allowed to use future 
Linux versions :o)
