Apple Apple has bought the CUPS code base, and has hired it's lead developer. "CUPS was written by Michael R Sweet, an owner of Easy Software Products. In February of 2007 Apple Inc. hired Michael and acquired ownership the CUPS source code. While Michael is primarily working on non-CUPS projects, he will continue to develop and support CUPS, which is still being released under the existing GPL2/LGPL2 licensing terms."

I think we are starting to expose you true colors with the name fanboi and zealot only one sort of person resorts to such language, and your lies are getting increasingly transparent.

Well, what can I do. Now I must go against myself and reply to this, after saying I would stop. Come on, use this against me.

Look, I write code for a living. I'm 3 months away from holding a degree in Computer Science. I should be able to feel the developer's pain, first hand, when there's pain to be felt.

But consider this: I'm contributing key code to a very nice project that's BSD licensed (and yes, it has been criticised for not picking the GPL. Over and over.).

I can only hope my work will be taken and spread as far as humanly possible.

Get it?

Now I'm really done with you. Bye.

Edit: missed "taken".

If you think for a second, that because you contribute to a BSD project, or that the *project* has criticized for not choosing GPL. Gives you the right to insult me.

It doesn't. I know why terms like "zealot" and "fanboi" are used and so do you, and if you don't you should perhaps have a little think.
