    GPL protects the right of the free programmer and user. So no one can use the free things only for money and without give something back. No smart human knowing his rights will work for BSD (for monetary corporations).

      BSD has been recognized by the FSF, isn't that enough to end the discussion?

        Yes the BSD is needed to close the gap between Open and Closed, as I describe in the previous page. But the community will not work for BSD because Corporations will use their code without give something back. So if we produce an LLVM plugin that will be under GPL.

          Apple will also sacrifice your first born male child to awaken the great Cthulu from his long sleep.

          *sigh*

          You get more manageable patches from companies that WANT to contribute. Or did you miss the whining about gpl code dumps in the last few years?
