Apple Now this is material that piques my interest more than anything: insights from one of the bigger names in the industry. Jean-Louis Gassee debunks the "Apple-must-license-its-software-or-die" myth by looking back upon the past - and if you don't know who JLG is, then please take that dunce hat and stand in the corner for three hours, contemplating your existence. Note: OSNews has a bug with using diacritic marks on the front page, so JLG's name is misspelled. It is correctly spelled in the article body.

I assume that Mr. Gasse also included a quick comparison of the current market cap of Be Inc vs. Apple Inc.

Did he also talk about the great success that his licensing of BeOS has been by any chance?


Eh, I'm guessing that you didn't RTFA - or even Thom's summary of it. JLG wasn't arguing FOR the notion that Apple needs to license its software - he was arguing AGAINST it.
