Speaking of Linux and the spirit of open source

Filed under

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.

This is one of the very reasons I've been so excited about getting Marshmallow, as well as why I've been so frustrated about not getting it. Read more
