"Napster could be used to distribute open source software, says British Linux kernel programmer Alan Cox, adding his voice to the current dispute over the technology."
"It follows a row between Napster users and the Linux community in the US as to whether users of the service are merely following the ethos of open source. Such suggestions have been vigorously denied by creator of the Linux operating system Linus Torvalds who told the Wall Street Journal that Napster should not be used to distribute pirated music.'
"Other open source experts including Eric Raymond and Larry Wall also endorse this position."
