GNU, GPL, Open Source It's a simple equation. Results = Developers x Time; and for Songbird, it's not working out. Yesterday, they announced they will drop Linux support in favour of Windows, Mac and to meet plans to include video features in the next release. The comments are intensely angry, as you can imagine. An untested Linux version will be kept around "for use by our Songbird engineers who develop on the Linux platform".

OK... so Songbird is losing Linux support. Fine.

Here's my question: Why would Windows and Mac users want to use a less functional iTunes alternative over the real thing? FOSS fans? Well will there be any fans left after this FOSS shunning stunt?
