Linux / Free and Open Source

162) Jim Zemlin

163) Free Software Foundation
Deeply partisan analysis from one of the frontline organizations in the free software movement. These folks are so committed they still refer to Linux as “GNU/Linux.” Probably in deference to founding member Richard Stallman, who churns out a blog post now and then.
