Sorry, but there is no brand Linux, or a brand OSS.
The OSS community in general and the Linux community
in special is just a bunch of people doing something
along a similar line. I don't really understand why
people always try to make a brand out of it of try
to put everyone into the same pot.
OSS people are very inhomogenous. There aren't two
who think the same way or eve do the same thing.

If you want to generalize those people, please
call them a community or a movement, but please
don't call them a brand.
