Open-source guru Eric Raymond joins Freespire board

Eric Raymond, a co-founder of the open-source movement, has joined the Freespire Leadership Board. Raymond recently stated that if desktop Linux is to advance, it must work with iPods and other MP3 players, and play DVDs, Windows Media, and Quick Time files, etc., and one of Freespire’s key objectives is to do exactly that.

Seriously. Eric. Get a fucking clue. Please.
People, for whatever reason, listen to you. Don’t sell out the ‘tribe’ (your words) to proprietary formats and proprietary vendors. Your iPod will work with your GNU/Linux machine.
