As capitalism continues to commodify -water, healthcare, genes, etc.- is it wrong to say that there's currently an attempt to "decommodify" the computer operating system? Linux has been in the news lately (scroll down) There seems to be a question of whether the graphical user interface will be free. I've also read that it won't be a strong competitor until applications are created for it.
