    Adns 1.5.0 is the first release now put out under a GNU GPLv3+ license.
    And DOA for commercial interests, not to mention non-commercial broad deployment outside of hard-line FOSS pundits.

        Don't come with the implication that commercial is proprietary, please.

        You don't want proprietary software on GNU/Linux, do you?

          yes? There are a ton of proprietary applications that I use on Windows that I would LOVE to have come over to Linux.

            No big deal with other options such as c-ares available.

              GPLv3 is actually better for commercial interests. It has an explicit patent grant and it's compatible with more FOSS licenses, such as the Apache one.

                  No, he means that unlike the kernel that is GPLv2 adns is now GPLv3+ and Apple avoids GPLv3 code like a vampire avoids light. And if it's bad for Apple apparently it's also bad for Marc's commercial interests.
