Linspire In a move that some may have sensed was coming, Eric S. Raymond - one of the co-founders of the open-source movement - has joined the Freespire Leadership Board. Raymond believes desktop Linux is entering into a critical period, noting that historically, users have shifted operating systems during periods of fundamental changes in hardware platforms. He believes the PC vendors' embrace of 64-bit computing will provide desktop Linux a unique window of opportunity, which if missed, may not come along again for many years.

Sorry, but I think at this point that whilst ESR of 1999, the Open Sources book, the How to Ask Questions FAQ and the Howto be a Hacker Howto might still have credibility among FOSS geeks, the ESR of 2006 lost all credibility among them long before it was officially announced that he was joining Freespire.
