I think this really points out my thoughts on the FSF the best. Not that the FSF is bad in any way, or it doesn’t do useful stuff, but they seem to be living in the past. I guess perhaps the point here is that if you don’t know what’s out there, and how things are used, it’s impossible to make things better. It’s like creating software for a problem that you don’t understand, or writing a book. You must first understand what the rules are, how people use them, and then you can create a better solution.
