Open Source Math: ESR > RMS:

March 29th, 2002

An interview in ZDNet with Eric Raymond, “Why open source will rule,” illustrates well the difference between the Open Source Initiative (OSI) and Richard Stallman’s organization, the Free Software Foundation (FSF). In brief, Raymond & OSI are pragmatists while Stallman & FSF are idealists. I don’t believe everything Raymond says, but he makes cogent, practical arguments for open source instead of proselytizing like Stallman.
