Raymond Attacks SCO

Armed and Dangerous: Open souce champion Eric Raymond goes ballistic on SCO in an open letter.

To a manipulator, all behaviors are manipulation. To a conspirator, all opposition is conspiracy. Is that you? Have you truly forgotten that people might make common cause out of integrity, ethical considerations, or simple self-defense? Has the reality you inhabit truly become so cramped and ugly?”
