Comment The idea is to create the "Nobel Prizes" of OS (Score 0, Flamebait) 162

Truly arrogant of esr and his followers at OSI - why didn't they just call it the ESR awards - after all he is going to be taking credit for the award winners work anyway.

Nobel made his fortune on dynamite. Esr is a dot com has been in terms of his fortune, but he does have a chance at making some small fortune by selling his silicon snake oil.

What I find particularly amusing about this is that Linus or RMS could win a Nobel Prize and esr might be a footnote in the history books as one who attempts to rewrite history and take credit for the work of others.
