  • Eric S. Raymond: Microsoft and the Big Lie (2001-06-01 21:20:45)
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, ESR has an opinion about Mr. Ballmer's outburst today regarding Linux's carcinogenic ways: "In the last three months, Jim Allchin and Craig Mundie and Steve Ballmer have launched a classic Big Lie campaign against open source. They have described it as "un-American", "a destroyer", and "a cancer". They have deliberately confused the GPL with non-infectious open-source licenses, and they have deliberately confused active combination of code with passive aggregation of data. They have lied, and lied, and lied again."
