By Ashlee Vance (The Register):
The OSI license debate, like so many things open source, conjures up both emotional and pragmatic elements.
Critics of the OSI have room to argue a couple of major points. They can claim that the organization has failed to provide a well-greased mechanism for license examination and approval, something some OSI members will cop to. In addition, they can push forward independently, claiming that the OSI is not their boss. Business moves at the speed of business not standards organizations.
