Linus Torvalds has an uncomfortable pause at 44:24 in this video.
The uncomfortable pause occurs when he concludes a confused critique of the GNU General Public License.
This video was from 2001 and a lot of time has passed since then. Perhaps Linus is feeling a bit more positive about the GPL than he was at that time. Perhaps not though, because he doesn't seem very inclined to begin the process of moving the Linux Kernel to GPLv3.
Linus has contributed a lot of time and effort to a very successful and useful GPL-licensed project. That code is running on my computer right now.
I hope that Linus can see that there are larger issues than efficiency, functionality, or the success of a particular software project.
If Linus remains ideologically opposed or even indifferent to the best aspects of the GPL and the mission of the FSF, I cannot feel a true sense of belonging to the Linux community.
Redhat GNU/Linux is running on the transaction servers of the New York Stock Exchange. That is a significant milestone for the Free Software community and the Open Source business allies.
It seems like a fine time for Mr. Torvalds to begin to widen the scope of his efforts to include ideological and social aspects of software design. I hope to see a commitment from Linus Torvalds to respect computer users' freedom.
