    Ok so I was in there IRC channel when I mention DD-WRT and I almost lost my head by the screams... They all starting to scream how DD-WRT is Sveasoft and how the move from DD-WRTto openwrt is just a rumor and is not real... I posted my ssh welcome log and they all got pist off because is a fake that DD-WRT does not have OpenWRT or EWRT in it...
    Whats going on here?
    Why is DD-WRT hated in the opensource comunity as well?
    I am lost!!!:(

    Because the little James droids out there all think James wrote the WRT firmware and that everyone is stealing from him. Sveasofts parania shows in the folks that worship him..

    Kind of scary - right??

    I think they see it as a threat to their elitism because DD-WRT will be useable by everyone while OpenWRT is more "hardcore" (or just hard to use? ;) ). They're probably just annoyed that someone could take advantage of the good things about OpenWRT without having to go through all the trouble of installing OpenWRT.
