Git and Linus...

http://amarok.kde.org

Really I guess Linus doesn't see the Linux development model as being very unique in the open source world, even though it is. Or maybe Linus is a bit like the Douglas Adam character who considers his house the "outside of the insane asylum" and the rest of the world the "insane asylum" - we're all just crazy.

Linus vs. the GPLv3

http://blogs.zdnet.com

Right now, Linus ain’t happy, not at all. Especially about GPLv3. He considers the anti-Tivoization provisions in the new license, which keep you from crippling hardware containing software using the license, to be…well, take it away Linus...

Free Software Folly

http://www.eweek.com

Soon, the Free Software Foundation—which deserves much of the credit for delivering these liberties—may find itself in the odd position of being likewise jettisoned by a large and important part of its user base for the FSF's refusal to respect the needs and desires of its own stakeholders.

http://news.google.com

This is a comprehensive explanation of the different perspectives of the Free Software Foundation and Linus Torvalds on the GPL. It explains that Linus likes the GPL mainly because of its share-and-share-alike principle, and doesn't care about the FSF's vision of software freedom.

Torvalds gets heated about the FSF

http://www.ussg.iu.edu

I'm damn fed up with the FSF being the "protector of freedoms", and also feeling that they can define what those freedoms mean.

The GPLv2 is a *legal*license*. And no, the FSF doesn't get to define what the words mean to suit their agenda.

Jonathan Schwartz replies to Linus regarding ZFS and GPLv3

http://blogs.sun.com

"Despite what you suggest, we love where the FSF's GPL3 is headed. For a variety of mechanical reasons, GPL2 is harder for us with OpenSolaris - but not impossible, or even out of the question. This has nothing to do with being afraid of the community (if it was, we wouldn't be so interested in seeing ZFS everywhere, including Linux, with full patent indemnity)."
