Steve Wozniak, Apple's co-founder has launched a scathing attack on Open Source and its supporters.

In an interview with eWeek, Wozniak described Open Source supports as a "group of people who want to undo the forces of industry that have given us so much in terms of wealth."

He also said that there are and unfortunately will always be people who want things to be free and that the open source movement was indicative of that, saying that it had nothing to do with free software but a group of people who just hate to see people succeed and make money from things.

He did, however, say that the way ideas were spread around was to be applauded.
