Open Source interview on NPR


Jogging in the morning has finally paid off. I was listening to NPR as I spent my time on the treadmill this morning, and heard about an upcoming interview with an Open Source proponent that would be on as I drove to work. So I listened to it, and there was one thing that was said that really impressed me. The interviewee was discussing Stallman's nazi-esque positions on closed source software, and saying how he (Stallman) viewed it as almost an ethical violation to which the interviewer then compared his views to that of downloading music off of the internet. It was a great juztaposition to think of corporate closed source software, and RIAA instigated lawsuits in the same light.
