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.

Business-friendly free software did not originate with OSI. Being a co-founder of OSI does not make one a "co-founder of open source movement," when the term "open source" is just a marketing term coined to represent an alternative to the FSF's philosophies that existed well before 1998.
