Linux Efforts to bring glitzy new graphics to Linux are fueling an old conflict: Does proprietary software belong in open-source Linux? The issue involves software modules called drivers, which plug into the kernel at the heart of the open-source operating system. Drivers let software communicate with hardware such as network adapters, hard drives and video cards.

Its GPL , you are GPL your part of the GNU Idea , the FSF is the free software foundation they give funds and legal advice when you help build free software and correct the GPL license when the laws change , they dont just control it , they own it entirely.

Now , its really simple , even you should have gotten it by now , you dont whant to be part of the GNU idea dont use the GPL at all , stay away from it , dont use its software either. Dont discuss it , dont mention it.

You guys have a problem with laws and idea , laws changes and idea are adaptable , Linus never tought is toy would be like this today , RMS never tought GNU would be like this today either.

Its the license that control everything. The GPL is worst then the mafia , when you die you get out of the mafia , when you use the GPL , even if your dead or whant out the software stay GPL.

Its the license that control it and own it.
