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.

Oh, when people will stop calling Eric one of 3 big figures in open source? Why the hell anyone would put him in same line with ESR or Linus?!
