Open Source Advocates Unleash Fury at Microsoft
"The List" is nearly 500 names long, and growing rapidly. It might have started out as a light-hearted jab, but it has quickly become a flash point of the building fury in the open source software community toward Microsoft and its recent claim of patent infringements.
The list was started by Digital Tipping Point, an online Web site dedicated to the open source movement. It blogs about open source and is producing a number of films about how open source "will empower average people to create an immense wave of new literature, art, and science," according to the Web site.
