No, sorry, I'm not trying to say that at all (and my LF employment
agreement is quite weird, I don't speak for them at all, and they can't
tell me what to do, and everyone is happy.)

I am trying to say that the "we" here is NOT the community. The
community does not have any "responsibility" to Microsoft or any
corporate. Our only responsibility is to our users, as Linus stated.
