GNU, GPL, Open Source We are heading towards a world where we no longer own the hardware we buy -- and there is no point in having free software if you can't own your hardware.

Is it good or bad?

I'm serious.

As a software developer I'm happy more and more software is free as speech. If also pattens in software could disappear...
But I'm also happy software is less and less free as beer.

Sorry, but it make a lot of sense to share your work with other developers for free, but it makes no sense at all to share it with end users.
I think we (as industry) are getting it right finally.
