This company is a wolf in sheep clothing. They pretend to be a friend of the community, but stab it in the back at the first chance. How could they ask anyone from the free software world to sign a NDA?
Who ever is saying on these site that they are an "Insider" is a lier. Why? Well, a person can not sign a NDA for GPL software. So that means that Nothing that a person get will be any thing from the GPL code. In other words no software.
The only ones that would possibly be defending the actions of Lindows are Lindow employees. They are the ones say that they are "Insiders". They are the ones that are attacking people for questioning Lindows intentions.
Why are they doing this? IPO!
If Lindows fails they they have lost their investments, their stock offerings, their time.
But beware Lindows is just another Enron. It's all smoke and mirrors and it's just trying to cash in before anyone realizes that.
But too late for Lindows the word is out. And if you think fighting Microsoft is going to hard, you ain't seen nothing yet.
