Might have been the perfect excuse for IBM (who owns Red Hat these days) without facing a shitstorm themselves…

IBM is all about saving money. This is an easy excuse to stop donating.

I think the media has done Stallman dirty but seems pretty naive of them not to consult their major sponsors before reapppointing him considering the controversy. Armchair but I would have thought they would have socialized the concept in the advance.

GPL will survive.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).

Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.
