   "I never imagined that the Free Software Movement would spawn a
   watered-down alternative, the Open Source Movement, which would
   become so well-known that people would ask me questions about 'open
   source' thinking that I work under that banner."; Richard Stallman

   Even though the BSD license was first used in 1980, and the first use of the GPL
   license was in 1988, the
   outright lying and revisionist propaganda efforts of the Free
   Software Foundation continue to this day.

Where exactly did RMS imply that the BSD license was written before
the GNU GPL?

The Open Source movement was created after the Free Software movement,
you can ask ESR about that.
