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.

Sorry... but every time someone yanks out the "BSD License is more business friendly" card I can only think about Brett and his classic Bike Shed arguments.

If you don't know about the Bike Shed or Brett Glass, YMMV.


And *IF* Brett see the need to comment here;

Hi Brett, how is that ISP in Wyoming, that can't compete with those closed source companies and also can't handle P2P networking?
