Austin teacher threatens to sic cops on Linux group because "No software is free"
A teacher in Austin sent an angry, accusatory email to a local
Linux collective ("HeliOS Project, which builds and provides
Linux computers to disadvantaged or 'exceptionally promising'
students") accusing them of piracy for distributing the free
operating system and excoriating them for encouraging her
students to do the same. She threatened to have the group's
organizer investigated by the police, too.
