Some folks are calling this a “rant”. And I suppose that’s exactly what it is. Also related to the AWS-Elastic tiff, but trying to step back from that specific dust-up to see a broader pattern.
yeah, the point that “open source sold free software out” is oversimplifying is an important one. the distance between “free software” and “open source always, as a matter of principle” is way less than the distance between “free software” and “open source sometimes, as a matter of convenience”, and that’s a nuance i hadn’t previously picked up on.
