Eben Moglen challenges Tim O'Reilly to "join the conversation"

It's the supposed moral superiority of the free software crowd that I object to. It's like saying, "I give half my income to charity, and you're bad because you don't". If you want to proselytize about free software, by all means do so, and with my blessing. But the moment you start browbeating me over the morality issues, you've stepped over the line. O'Reilly also prints books about Windows stuff. So what? He's done a lot for the F/OSS/Linux community. But it never seems enough for the Stallmanites. Ever wonder why Stallman and Torvalds aren't chummy? This is why.
