Homage or theft?

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Cheeky monkeys: LinuxOne, the controversial Linux distro, has started a "Flame of The Week".

Wonder where it got that idea from? Originality does not appear to be the company's strong suit (then again, what is the company's strong suit?). Couldn't you have found another name, guys?

The Register's first Flame of the Week was posted November 11: LinuxOne has been running its version for just two weeks. As a contest. In which you can win a T-shirt for the best flame. And there are rules -- you must apply for your T-shirt within two weeks. Also, "Please do NOT use profanity".

Either you got or you ain't: and LinuxOne definitely ain't. ®
