How does this affect linux servers running games? That's right, it has no effect.
I don't see how you can say that with any certainty... one of the reasons so many servers run Linux is because it is free.
Also, why post a link to Slashdot? All they did was post a link to a story that was already published.
Because I feel it's important to show the sources of information... I'd rather include an extra link with each story rather than cultivate the impression I came up with this story independently.
Anyway, it's interesting to read so many criticisms of the choice of linking to this story, since I often worry I can be too discriminating about what to post.
