GNU, GPL, Open Source Now this is interesting. We see what is at its core a very valid concern, in practice not a problem to anyone, and, thanks to the tone of the press release, close to trolling. The Free Software Foundation Latin America is complaining about something that has been known for a while - there is some non-Free code stuck in the Linux kernel (mostly firmware). A valid issue of concern from an idealogical viewpoint, but sadly, the tone of the press release turns this valid concern into something close to trolling.

Anyone who takes ANY of them seriously are complete morons, the FSF and co stopped being an asset to OSS years ago, and are now reduced to nothing but trolls using the same tactics that they decry Microsoft as being evil for doing.

They will ultimately destroy the OSS community, just wait and see.
