  • Like it or not, "Open Source" has a militant right wing. mi2g may be idoitic or crass, but the kernel of what they are saying is not something they made up.

    It's not unreasonable to imagine a group of slashdot kiddies attacking SCO, although I think a lot of people have a problem realizing open source has bad people like every other community.
    • There is hardly a militant wing. The typical slashdot kiddies are running windows these days and couldn't code their way out of a paper bag

      It is fairly obviously a botnet, of windows computers controlled by a single person. Maybe 1 or 2 people. That doesn't make a militant wing or a minority any more than ted bundy was a militant wing of men.

      • And the death threats to Darl McBride? And Eric Raymond advocating people kicking Jonathon Schwartz in the theeth?

        Sounds pretty militant to me. I'm not talking about this one incident.
        • I don't believe Darl McBride has received death threats. If you follow groklaw you will see a history of Darl and SCO making unfounded claims about threats and hackers and nothing actually happening (i.e. self-inflicted outages, FBI unaware of threats and taking no action, etc).

          Eric Raymond is a nut. There are other nuts, some of whom might be arsed to use a virus to control a botnet to DDOS sco, but they are no shady group that tries to recruit.

          They are a few bad apples, but independant loner bad apple
