"The Open Rights Group calling for such blockage was
joined by none other than the father of the free software movement,
Richard Stallman. However, I have to once again question how free
and open are these free and open source software advocates? Is the
movement and FOSS open to all (except Microsoft, Oracle or anyone
else the Open Rights Group, Richard Stallman or any other number of
FOSS groups or figures so deems at some point in the future)?
Sounds like the kind of control and red tape we refer to when we
warn vendors against undoing the benefits of open source,
particularly openness, flexibility and transparency."
