Sudden But Inevitable Betrayal

Comic Transcript

ALEX: Ubersoft Technical Support, Alex speaking. How may I help you today?

CUSTOMER: I’m confused about Ubersoft’s policy towards Open Source software.

ALEX: Ubersoft is funding a foundation that will provide a forum for Open Source communities and business developers to collaborate on increasing participation in Open Source development.

CUSTOMER: So Ubersoft supports Open Source?

ALEX: Absolutely not. We’re convinced Open Source is a festering cancer that will destroy America from within.

CUSTOMER: So you don’t support Open Source?

ALEX: We support it, but we don’t endorse it. We fear it, so we’re biding our time, waiting for the perfect opportunity to stab it in the back.

CUSTOMER: That sounds like a plot twist form an old B-Reel Hollywood Noir Film.

ALEX: It’s interesting you should mention that, because we get a lot of our ideas from old B-Reel Hollywood Noir Films.

CUSTOMER: I guess I’ll hang up now.
