  • Eric Raymond on the VA Linux Change of Course (2001-06-28 15:43:28)
    A few hours after the news broke regarding VA Linux's decision to leave the hardware business in favor of concentrating on its SourceForge OnSite software and its OSDN web properties, we wrote Eric Raymond with a few questions. Mr. Raymond, in addition to being a "noted open source evangelist," also sits on the VA Linux Board of Directors, so we were able to get his take not only on the immediate picture from the ground but the broader picture of just what VA Linux's decision means for Linux and open source software in general. We also asked a question or two about yesterday's other big story: Microsoft's decision to support FreeBSD in its .NET initiative.
