GNU, GPL, Open Source Some people swore to me that just because the free-software General Public License (GPL) clashes with the Apple App Store's Terms of Service (ToS), didn't mean that Apple would actually pull down GPLed apps. Well, Apple just did. Remi Denis-Courmont, a Linux developer of the popular VLC media player, has just announced that Apple had pulled the popular GPLed VLC media player from its App Store.

And they are second category people by your standards?


Nah, I objected to using "people" in general, as Apple customers are a very small subset of "people".

One could argue that when Apple loses, "people" win in long term, as money is funneled towards more open ecosystems and less to Apple specific technologies.
