Absolutely, and I think it is offending a lot of Linux users, developers
and evangelists. I have so much respect for the kernel community, having
sat with my toe in that swimming pool now for a few years, and some of
the comments made by Linus and others (especially to the press) have
forced me to ask a lot of tough questions - not about the comments but
about the people making them.
Disagreeing about a software license is one thing, but what I've stood
witness to is something entirely different. There's this great fear in
circulation (largely started by the kernel community) that GPLv3 is going
to split us down the middle and ruin us, yet they seem to totally miss
the irony of their choice of language and tactic.
