Bad Form

After the draft version of GPLv3 came out, I intently followed all of the various discussions for about a month. It got pretty boring, pretty fast. Boring because it seems obvious to me that it isn't going to be earth shattering.

Interpretations of the text range from "riddled with unacceptable restrictions" and "<< 3 incompatible", to "not significantly different from past versions". Whatever. I'm confident that when v3 goes gold and the dust settles, we'll all still be here. Life will go on.

This guy over at Forbes disagrees. Of course, it's a little difficult for me to take him seriously with all of the vitriol aimed at RMS. See if you can count the number of personal insults.
