Linux After seven years of work, the LinuxBIOS project is on the brink of making a free BIOS a standard option for computers. Serious obstacles remain, including a lack of resources and resistance from some proprietary chipset manufacturers and OEMs, but the advantages of LinuxBIOS indicate that its availability to the average computer buyer may be only months away.

I don't see anyone holding a gun to your head, forcing you to install it.

Oh, so it is mandatory for the use of Linux to have the aproval of the GPL trolls, lucky me I enjoy the real freedom and I can install Linux and enjoy its essense w/o guilt.

I say Kudos for the real freedoms hypocryts,

Nobody's telling you you have to use Linux. No one said they disapprove of people who don't use Linux. The only person who brought up the GPL was you.

Having seen enough of it here myself, I can understand anger at the Linux-centric viewpoint, but you're not making any valid comments on the cited article or the Linux-centricity of the OSNews community. You're just throwing off insults at people, and claiming that they're hypocrites as some kind of lame attempt at covering your arse. Which makes you something of a hypocrite too, no?

Too bad I neither use Linux nor approve of the GPL, eh? 0 out of 2, not so good.
Reading comprehension isn't your strong suite, is it?

So you don't feel it's necessary to comply with linux licence? Why then should anyone feel it's necessary to comply with (say) Windows licences or film copyrights?

Face it, Mitarai, you're just a GPL-hating loser who's full of crap.
