    Hmm... not sure that I understand the distinction you make between writing code or 'freeloading', are you suggesting that anyone not writing code (open source code I assume) are freeloaders if they _use_ open source?

    Or was this not a question in a larger scope but something particularly directed at me, as in some ad hominem longshot of -'unless you write open source you should shut your mouth' or some such?

    Hey, don't knock the importance of zero!

    Reminds me of Futurama,

    Bender: What an awful dream, ones and zeroes everywhere... and I thought I saw a two.
    Fry: It was just a dream bender, there's no such thing as a two.

    Almost no one outside of GNU uses this extremely horrible license, so maybe that wasn't a short coming to anyone else?

    If both companies were legally bound to release all their modifications then FreeBSD would move forward faster and Juniper and Cisco would have to compete on other strengths than 'the secret sauce'.
    Oh, you mean like the Apple/khtml debacle that had people whining about the unmanageably huge code dumps that met the terms of the license?

    I don't. I just like to troll like some other stupid dumbasses in here.

    Exactly! I need to steal this project that was licensed to specifically deny it!

    Debian already did:

    http://lists.debian.org/debian-legal.../msg00047.html

    The outcome was AGPLv3 was not DFSG free

    Wrong, my friend, the whole debate is about AGPL and what its definition considers to be a "user".

    In no goddamn way does it mean that they hate GPL or that BSD is somehow "better" a license, yet isn't that exactly what you still managed to conclude in your tiny little head.

    Or is it perhaps closed source that you're so eagerly promoting?

    From the main (free) Debian repository: owncloud (AGPL), otrs (AGPL)... it was a short fight it seems, AGPL won.

    BTW, never heard of Launchpad or Gitorious?
