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.

....or else why would he dilute his reputation by climbing into bed with Michael Robertson?

ESR, write some software and sell it - like we all used to do to make money ;)

you honestly think his "reputation" could sink much lower, after his pretty much continually disgusting rantings on his blog?

(I mean short of his starting to eat babies and all that)

Disgusting rantings?

You may not like it, but I do. I won't mention which I like the most. Last time Danes did that "somebody" burned down our embassies.
