Well at least people working on Debian who don't like the state of affairs can go and make their own distro using the exact same code, just like the gNewSense people did (albeit with Ubuntu, but it's close enough to be considered the same thing). That said, the OSNews story is very much what I'd expect from that news source: find some random person's opinion, blow it up to the level of international diplomacy, try and stir up an argument. Still, a bit of a change from Apple fanboyism and hanging on Steve Jobs' every word.

Meanwhile much of Mr Fletcher's work may well be locked up in RISC OS Ltd's possession where not even the inadequate exposure of a shared source initiative will uncover some of the finer stuff. I'd regard that kind of engagement with regret if I were ever in a similar position.
