It's his (company's) software, so they can set whatever terms they want
No one's denying that. Larry is completely within his rights.
The comedic cognitive dissonance arises because the descriptions of his actions
- "Larry did everything he could" (Linus)
- "this is really an open source community problem" (Larry)
- "we represent as open-source friendly a commercial organization as you are ever going to see" (Larry, again)
that are so patently at odds with the facts. (The suggestion that BitMover -- who have released almost no source to any of their products -- are the most open source friendly than Novell, say, is simply laughable).
Or, of course, when he does something insanely moronic, like suggest kernel developers should "Code Red" one of their members, like the Marine Corps.
