Thailand coup and Free Software

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

There has been coverage in the press recently that the new government of Thailand doesn’t like Free Software anymore. It seems they have made complete turnaround indeed, with newly appointed minister of IT putting in the classic econodwarf act, advocating non-free software and whatnot.

Of course, such things have happened before in other countries. Sometimes, it turned out that some non-free software company was behind the scenes all along. These companies are widely known for lobbying against Free Software where they can. And that’s what made it clear to me who really was behind the coup in Thailand: microsoft ;-)
