The story:

A teacher at an undisclosed school recently discovered her students sharing Linux CDs and talking about how cool it was.  She immediately proceeded to confiscate the CDs, and when she determined they had learned about Linux from a blog, she emailed the blog’s author and complained about his “illegal activity” and “spreading misconceptions”.  She insists there is no such thing as “free” software, and promises to press charges against the blog’s owner once she investigates the matter further.

I don´t know if I should laught or cry here becasue her ignorance is astounding.

That teacher is exactly what Morphius for the Matrix talks about “You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.” thats what this is, you should really read the blog entry.

WOG out.
