Great, but I think that comparing Linux with the economic systems, it would have the best of both; because it's a big community where everybody looks for the mutual benefit like in the communism, and you have a lot of liberties more than in winbugs; in fact you can do whatever whit it, similar to a capitalism too.

Thanks guys for comments. It's sad what have todays world become. It's sad if you cannot make ironical jokes anymore because nobody will understand them. Still, a lot of older geeks know about this prank so this wallpaper is devoted to them. BTW, just FYI i'm not the original autor, only hi-res maker ; )

Thanks for making this critical distinction clear!

My first thought when I came across this was "those cheeky bastards!"; As if some sneaky minion protecting the status quo on Microsoft's behalf was deliberately trying to associate the Open Source movement with Communism or Totalitarianism - an absurd untruth to anyone who understands what Open Source truly represents and how it will benefit human civilization.

That said, I appreciate the author's innovation here, accordingly.

Open source is private charity, not government software. Its a testament to individual choices in free markets, not communism. Doing something for free doesn't = communism. Communism requires government force. They do this for fun.

This is a remake of an old wallpaper which cannot be found on internet anymore! There are some simmilarities between linux evangelists who blindly follow the Path of Linux :D Believe me, I live in ex-communist county : )
