I guess you didn't notice the ;)

I mostly noted that you insinuated I was trying to disguise my IP.

The fangirl is someone who proclaims that having source code gives someone more "freedom".

I believe having access to the source code does, in fact, give you more freedom. For starters, it gives you the freedom to learn from the code and modify it.

The fangirl is someone that claims that the GPL is more free or just as free as BSD or MIT/X11.

I believe the GPL is in fact just as free as the BSD license. So, are you so lacking in vocabulary that you can't present arguments to support your views, and must resort to insults?

Guess what: that's what a troll is.

I guess that was directed at me. I've most likely been using and programming on linux professionaly than you have.

Uh, whatever. I'm not a programmer, I'm a game designer. What's your point? If you're trying to convince anyone that you don't have an anti-Linux bias, I'm sorry to say that so far you're failing miserably.
