GNU, GPL, Open Source The FSF today released version 3 of the GNU GPL, the popular free software license. "Since we founded the free software movement, over 23 years ago, the free software community has developed thousands of useful programs that respect the user's freedom. The programs are in the GNU/Linux operating system, as well as personal computers, telephones, Internet servers, and more. Most of these programs use the GNU GPL to guarantee every user the freedom to run, study, adapt, improve, and redistribute the program," said Richard Stallman, founder and president of the FSF. This article has some interesting replies from the BSD community (right in the middle).

To the FSF, "Don't agree" == "Don't understand". it's a comfortably patronizing attitude.


The FSF kool-aid drinkers don't seem to understand that their FSF GNUSpeak of "you don't understand" doesn't work anymore. Torvalds smacked around one of the FSF's propagandists on the kernel mailing for using GNUspeak the last time GPLv3 came up over there..
