To be fair he summarises that the move is likely to do more harm than good but he greatly dislikes the idea of having DRM protected software on an open-source platform. We all know the (long running) arguments for and against but realistically, many companies must protect their IP and open platforms will surely benefit from having such mainstream software running. Can no-one come up with a practical compromise?
