  5. The creator of Operating System U is by all means incapable of delivering the
  6. product being proposed by Operating System U, to backers or the general populace.
  7. There are several reasons why this is so, but I shall be brief.
  8. To start, the 17 year old "CEO" of Operating System U intends to sell
  9. documentation for his derivative of free software, an immoral act that violates
  10. the principles of the Free Software Movement. This may not be illegal,
  11. but it is certainly uncharacteristic of a GNU/Linux distribution.  
  12. The uBook Go netbooks offered as backer rewards are in
  13. fact generic machines manufactured in China.  The campaign is therefore misleading,
  14. as it does not state that the uBook Go is a rebranded netbook, and portrays it
  15. as a device created by the company behind OS u. The following link is
  16. submitted as evidence of this fact.

  18. Based on these deceptive practices, I believe Operating System U is
  19. nothing short of an exploitation of free software, and constitutes fraud by its very nature.
