Is the OSI is "slow to realize" what Micro(Novell)soft is up to?

Or is it just that the OSI just doesn't really care about software freedom? Maybe that's the reason they've gathered under the banner of "Open Source" rather than "Free Software.

The OSI doesn't want to be "political" so maybe these things Microsoft and Novell are doing is right in step with the "Open Source" approach. Making money by marginalizing a more principled movement seems right in line with the work of the OSI over the years.

In other words...

"The OSI seems to mention us again because it slowly realises that Novell and Microsoft build a shared monopoly"

So, a duopoly then? Seriously, there's a word for this.
