This is for all the nay-sayers.
And for a brief (heated) response to those documents from Eric Raymond of OSI: http://www.catb.org/~esr/not-the-osi...ween-rant.html
It's a genuinely interesting set of documents. And while there is undoubtedly a little bias toward OSI in the commentary, the bulk of the documents (and common sense) paint a pretty troubling picture. My personal research and knowledge of MS and SCO history seems to confirm much of what's been covered. Groklaw has also covered much discussion on this topic from a more legally-minded perpective.
And for one of the best pro-opensource commentaries around: http://www.xiph.org/about.html
It's centered around a media rights discussion, but makes many valid and well spoken points that apply to nearly all aspects of open and free computing standards.
Just thought others might find this as interesting as I did,
