Can I sit in?

Jonathan Schwartz invites Linus to dinner (in response to Linus' comments on GPL V3 as a possibility for the Linux kernel if OpenSolaris goes that route). But more importantly, his blog post, in doing so, sparks off a blizzard of comments that make for superb reading and remind me once again, of why the FOSS community is so much fun to observe. Everyone's heart is on their sleeves, the flaming is high-class, the points made are sharp, the technical content is high and some of the most important issues that hold the community together (reciprocity in this case) always make an appearance. Check it out. (I found Linus' comments on the kernel mailing list excessively cynical but your mileage may vary).
