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."

Lets not turn this into a celebrity deathmatch. The should be considered more important than the person delivering the message. It does not matter if Theo promotes F/OSS more than Linus or not and there is no way of knowing it Only if the opensource community stopped with this infighting, probably things would happen at a faster pace. It's more like "Taking one step forward and two steps backward". IMHO Linux world can learn a lot from the bsd world and so can bsd world learn from Linux world.
