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."

Theo isn't good for OSS

Theo damages OSS where he only is able to. He puts a fanatical image on OSS and pulls it in the mud. Companies like RedHat have acted far more for the future of OSS than Theo would ever be able to.

Please Theo, got to MS and shut the f*ck up. YOU are an enemy of OSS.
