    there is a simple solution to this problem: just don't buy intel hardware.

That's not in the least bit true of BSD projects. Anyone can make a proprietary fork whenever they wish including the original developer.
    It's far from being almost impossible to make GPL projects proprietary. You don't have a clue what you're talking about.

It could have been written using any license under the sun, including GPL, and they would still be allowed to relicense it to _whatever_ they want. Any BSD licensed version is still BSD licensed and available for forking as has already been done.

    Just sick.
    As expected, you're making things up. Nobody said that. Just use the open source fork that's not only publicly available but also improved from when it was open source and quit being malignant. Or just complain on random forums while throwing yourself a pity party in order to justify your behavior, that's certainly welcome here in this dump.

    I'm used to giving a lot for free and rarely getting much in return.

    I don't expect to get things..

    Funny enough, vast majority of people who are much better off than me never share. Never take the effort to help others. Never contribute back.

    It's a pattern at this point and I'm seeing this with companies too.

    Intel was never throwing a party for anybody to begin with.
    "Free beer until we change our mind" makes zero promises of beer being free forever or the hosting of a party.

    Attitudes like this are why companies are hesitant to participate in open source. It's stupid fucks that don't appreciate that a company has, until then, donated money to the public domain which is forever in the public domain. The code has been forked and no rug has been pulled. Or are you upset that they won't keep wiping your ass for you ?

    Well, closed sourced software plus a daily dose of FU towards the FOSS community keeps the linux fans loyal to ngreedia then who can blame intel?

    Hell, maybe AMD should do the same since nothing they do for the community is ever enough.
