what kind of morons are they ? Stallman never said that software should be free of charge. Basically what he wants is that when you get your hands on software, you should be allowed to make the best possible use of it, which includes modifying it and giving it to your friends.
Then, RMS and the FSF never fragmented anything. It was Perens and Raymond who fragmented the free software community with their open source ideas.
maybe he's a nutcase. maybe his looking like a hippy changes perception. But that doesn't change the fact this this article is FUD, inaccurate, lies and/or extremely biased against the FSF.
Also, most "problems" with the GPL aren't problems - the patent clause was just reworded, but casically didn't change the situation. That leaves the DRM clause, which just means that you can't give anyone a GPLv3'd program, thus giving them the right to modify and run it, without letting him actually run the actual modified program via DRM. You may impose DRM with the help of GPL'd software, but if you prevent people from removing it via DRM, you're in trouble.
