Eh... I hope you do realize that Linus' opinion on v3 does not
determine that of other people, all FSF apologists' wanking
nonwithstanding. Moreover, not everyone who considers tivoization
a bad thing approves of section 6, obviously not for same reasons
as Linus... And no, I'm not going to summarize the thread for you;
RTFArchives if you care.
As for objective reality... Are you serious? How about the fact
that physics manages to make correct predictions that have to be
either true or false regardless of observer's culture, for starters?
Or that mathematics is not subjective, to pick more fundamental
layer - degree of internal consistency is too high to seriously
discuss that... If you really want to indulge in postmodernist
verbal masturbation, it's your business; I have more interesting
and satisfying things to do with my mind, thank you very much.
And no, lwn is not a place for remedial course on phylosophy of
science, so you'll have to go elsewhere for that either.
