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.

GPL2 sucks

Member since:

This is an expected result of the insane and unethical GPL3 limitations. It was possible with GPL2, but now it seems everything is prohibited.

There is a bug in OSNews: when editing comment, there is no button to save/submit and it is impossible to change title. There is no way to delete comment either. Sucks as well.
