Speaking of Linux and the spirit of open source

Filed under
OSS

It's almost shameful how paltry Justin Steinman's understanding of open source is. I don't say this to denigrate Justin personally, but when I read things like this from Groklaw I just can't understand how Novell manages to say "open source" with a straight face.

I'm all for using open source as a capitalist weapon. But this is the opposite of that. It's an attack on open source by a company that claims to espouse it. And it relies on deliberate falsehoods to propagate its still anemic success.

The Linux Setup - Neil McGovern, Debian Project Leader
