I beg to differ. This is mere character assassination and abuse.
Raymond may have become a one-trick pony who has drifted away from current relevance, but Bruce has certainly taken a different path -- one which has brought him far closer to the FSF's camp. As such, he's shown personal growth and contributed to political discussions consistently on a progressive front. To say that Bruce and Raymond are of the same cloth is to neglect the very significant differences that have developed in their positions -- it illustrates that the critic is either ignorant of or deliberately disingenous towards the history.
Thank you, Bruce, for your continued relevance and integrity, and your willingness to spend a great deal of your time lending a sane and thoughtful voice to the debates framing the philosophy of free software.
