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.

Ok, to be more clear, it was the banks being moronic that caused the recession. You were painting everyone with that brush, especially the tech industry which has barely been touched by it.

I don't really disagree with your point in a general way, but I don't think you can use the recession to prove it.
