  1. This is what I've been wondering a long time...

    This is what I've been wondering a long time also. I do not get the Linux fanboys that do not see any point in GPL or even dislike GPL and have no issue with proprietary stuff. Why be a Linux fan...

    Corporate support is a double edged sword, it may make the project move faster but it also changes direction ... and moving faster means little when it's in the wrong direction. GPL does not exclude...

    And you seem to assume a lot of stuff you know nothing about, like what I know and what I don't. I'm perfectly aware of the X11 license, that's why I said I was annoyed by it. And while the CLA in...

    Exactly!

    Kwin maintainer says that Kwin won't(!) support Mir - and even if someone would post a patch, he would veto it(!), just like that, in advance, he just made his mind to not support THE...

    This is actually the reason that makes me support Mir rather than Wayland, it annoyed me to no end that such a core component of a supposedly free/libre OS is not GPL licensed and is open to...

    You see, this is where you start to make up things and put them in my mouth that I've never actually said (if you believe otherwise, please quote me). I do not mind anybody releasing their code under...

    Sure, I see it as much more unfair to deprive the users of the derived sw from my code the freedoms I believe are very important and everyone should have. You cater to the Apples of the world, I care...

    In another words you do not care if your (or someone's elses) code gets taken and re-released under conditions that do not grant its users the same freedoms the original did - I get that! You do not...

    Do I really need to repeat myself? ;) I've said it already - I do not think it's hard to get unless you're trying very hard not to get it. Either you care about those freedoms in which case you want...

    I thought one of the main reason to use BSD was a lack of these "automated brainfucks", now it is a nice feature that provides an easy way to do something? Hmm .. let's see, so when something is...
