Funnyside of Open Source

I read this really funny sequence of comments to Hani's recent post about a spat between Bob Lee, who contributed some AOP code to the JBoss 4.0 effort, and Marc Fleury, fearless leader of JBoss.

Marc Fleury

Hani, perhaps you could name your sources… CDN? Cameron? chiara? carlos V who seems to have a thing for my wife? cedric? rickard? the list goes on when you are as popular as we are and talk the way I do…

Hey Carlos, since when do you have a thing for Mrs. Fleury? Marc doesn't seem to mind – that's the real spirit of open source: LGPL your wife.

Marc Fleury

jon tirsen: are you pissed off because I called IoC "gay"? I am sorry if you took that personally, that was just my view on the technology.

So once and for all
I WILL HUNT YOU ALL DOWN FOR TRYING TO PROFIT FROM THE INTERNET. THE INTERNET BELONGS TO JBOSS AND ME ME ME AND ANY OF YOU TRYING TO USE IT AND PAY JBOSS ZERO DOLLARS WILL PAY IN BLOOD SWEAT TOIL AND TEARS!!!!

And as a night cap for all you bad boys out there. I heard from a friend of a friend of friend (who might be as reliable as hani's source) who mentioned JBoss to Alfred Chuang from BEA and I quote "he flipped a switch, he said JBoss was a crazy company that had STOLEN THEIR CODE (!!!!!!!) but that he couldn't sue us because he was afraid for his life". Now THAT is pretty crazy.

LGPL mrs Fleury? wow I'll have a piece of that!

But knowing Dr Marc he wouldn't go for that license. He would go for the GPL. The GPL would require you give your wife back in return.

Let's even not get started on the BSD license, with the BSD you can take the wife and run.

Actually GPL would require that you released any progeny back to the community. That's just wrong in so many ways.

Bob Lee

Can we pull the sticks out of our asses and stop taking ourselves so seriously?

Jon Tirsen

And by all means keep calling IoC "gay" I certainly don't mind. It's trendy to be "gay".

Looks like open source communities take their openness seriously.  I have heard many hilarious spats like this before but never out in the open like this.
