Free Software Foundation must die
Author: JT Smith
Kelly McNeill writes "The problem is that the FSF has no technical perspective. Lacking perspective and not being able to appreciate or understand the current technology trends is not a crime -- unless you're the FSF. This organization has tremendous influence that translates directly into the community's scarce resources. When a project receives the foundation's approval, it results in much effort being poured into that project. In theory this might be a good thing, except the foundation has a knack for approving technologically unsound projects. That lack of perspective combined with influence has cost the community millions of lost man-hours. And that is inexcusable."
