> He's a well-known FOSS advocate, and initiated the NoSoftwarePatents campaign. While I can understand that you just skimmed it briefly, because it's long, I think your comment is a bit uninformed.
Back when he worked with the FFII, Red Hat, MySQL and others to lobby against software patents in Europe that was certainly useful and appreciated. I did read that article and some of his current rants on his blog and his comments on LWN articles and I am not sure his continues attacks on people and organisations that do try to advance the free software and anti-software patent cause is very productive. Trying to defend Microsofts anti Free Software actions, promoting software patent licensing and personal attacks on people who once helped him, but are now no longer paying him to lobby, are very unhelpful.
