GNU, GPL, Open Source Eric S. Raymond is one of the three big figures in open source, together with Linus Torvalds and Richard Stallman. During a talk for the Long Island Linux User Group, he made some interesting statements about the GPL, namely that the GPL is no longer needed due to the way the open source movement works.

Has he not seen the recent economic market take a rather large nose dive because there was zero control to stop companies being moronic?
It might be tedious but it keeps us all honest.
