Submission + - Bill Hilf Clarifies "Free Software" Commen

tshak writes: Bill Hilf recently posted a clarification on Port 25 related to this earlier story about comments he made like, "The Free Software movement is dead": "My statements were shaped in a sensationalist way, not surprisingly, this isn't the first time the press has used shock value to get headlines... In this article it sounds like I say 'because they are paid, then free software is extinct!' which, of course, is silly. I know this and I think it's a combination of me not being clear and this particular article shaping it in a certain direction. But I'll take the blame: I shoved my foot in my mouth and it came across as idiotic. "
