What’s up with The Star?

The Star is a reputable paper, but within the last couple of weeks, they’ve got rather negative press towards the FLOSS world. First it was M3 owning the GPL, and now its the law behind Open Source.

Simos brought us to the article’s attention, and a response to the editor. His letter is a pretty good sum up of information, and then it got posted to LinuxToday too.

It’s nice to know that Deepak Pillai has come up with a response, and also shows us his presentation. His comments are well worthwhile, and from the presentation, looks like there was some mis-reporting. So why is such a reputed newspaper trying to tell the masses that there’s trouble brewing in the open source world? I just wish that next time folks ask the myoss/ossig lists, or at least some of us for comments.
