A F/OSS related podcast advertises a M$ product

A few weeks back I became aware that FLOSS Weekly started advertising for the Ford Sync product which is co-developed by Microsoft. I know Leo Laporte only cares about money. That’s fine, he’s a businessman and wants to make as much money as possible. Fair enough. I do think it’s atrociously bad taste to advertise for one of the most closed and predatory companies in the world on a show geared towards Free & Open Source users/supporters. It’s shows a total lack of respect to the community you’re trying to cater to. Honestly I haven’t listened to a TWIT network show in some time now and will definitely not listen to any going forward. Sorry that’s my choice.
