GNU, GPL, Open Source "This guest whitepaper explains how a hypervisor can be used to leverage GPL software while isolating it from proprietary code, in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of the GPL. It was written by a TRANGO Virtual Processors product manager, and uses that company's hypervisor as an example."

No, but I think you can't understand, as you manage to put things out of context here.
"success" is not measured by perceived amount of "fear" and the number of people that don't like sth, that should be obvious to you. I'm still wondering how you came to such a conclusion.


It was probably the part where you said

You can see that GPLv3 is very successful, because the
fear is visible


that made him come to that conclusion ;)

These are interesting times. Capitalists have latched on to GPL software as a convenient tool for doing what they do best. I think that the coming confrontations between them and the (small? or large?) number of anti-capitalists who have traditionally been invested in the GPL will be entertaining to watch. My bet is on the guys with the money.
