GNU, GPL, Open Source A lengthy debate that began with a suggestion to dual license the Linux kernel under the GPLv2 and the GPLv3 continues on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Throughout the ongoing thread Linux creator Linus Torvalds has spoken out on the GPLv2, the upcoming GPLv3, the BSD license, Tivo, the Free Software Foundation, and much more. During the discussion, he was asked we he chose the GPLv2 over the BSD license when he's obviously not a big fan of the FSF.

Be advised that from now on, when I see common propaganda tactics being employed by FSF advocates, I intend to point them out. And I encourage others to do the same.

Such techiques are wrong. And they should be exposed to the light of day whenever an attempt is made to use them.


really?, like the practice of deliberately quoting someone out of context in order to give a different meaning to their words? perhaps you should refrain from using propaganda tactics yourself before you commence on accusing others. shame on you.
