Red Hat Red Hat has an NDA cooperation with Marvell for the wireless chips that they want to use for the One Laptop per Child-project. The idea of this is that both parties think Marvell will be more open in the future, but this is absolutely not the path they should walk, according to OpenBSD's Theo de Raadt. "I am getting really tired of 'open source' people who work against the open source community. Our little group can probably take credit for having 'opened up' more wireless devices than the rest of the community, and therefore we feel we have a better grasp of the damage OLPC has done here."

At first, mark the "" ;)

Secondly, refering to a free market and ignoring reality isn't useful too. Is Theo viral? Take BSD, use the code, do what you want - what's viral with these things? It's real freedom. It isn't "freedom" according to some peoples opinion, it's freedom to choose your own way - most people think they are doing the right thing, history will show.

>but please stop throwing non-relevant and/or incorrect out of your windows.

It's very important to see it right, most Linux distros do not care about any freedom. The "war" I mean, isn't the variety of Linux distros, it's the ill attempt to "fight" against others instead of working together.
