GNU, GPL, Open Source A group of 29 Linux kernel developers have recently come together and produced a position statement on GPLv3 [.pdf|.txt] explaining why they don't like the GPLv3. "The three key objections noted in section 5 are individually and collectively sufficient reason for us to reject the current licence proposal. [...] We foresee the release of GPLv3 portends the Balkanisation of the entire Open Source Universe upon which we rely." They've also run a GPLv3 poll.

if they want to, the Linux kernel developers and OSI can do great damage to the cause of Free Software.

Which is exactly what the FSF is doing with GPL v3!
