Subject: GPL'd code misappropriation, film at 11

But wait!  There's more!  Theo de Raadt calling someone "mean".

Not your usual corporate flunky misappropriating GPLd code into
proprietary software at EvilCo[tm].  OpenBSD taking a Broadcom
(EvilCo[tm] incarnate, this week) driver from Linux.  Linux dev calling
them on it.

Oh, and the obsd driver doesn't actually work yet.  So clearly the
poison _can't_ be in the goblet in front of you.  Wait, no, wrong movie.

The Inquirer is so shaken by events they forget to apply their special
"sauce".

Hilarity ensues.

Soon to be a major motion picture.
