GNU, GPL, Open Source "This guest whitepaper explains how a hypervisor can be used to leverage GPL software while isolating it from proprietary code, in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of the GPL. It was written by a TRANGO Virtual Processors product manager, and uses that company's hypervisor as an example."

GPL works, especially v3

You can see that GPLv3 is very successful, because the fear is visible : white papers, trolls bashing GPLv3 saying it's not successful.
Good!

Of course, this white paper obiously is not more a method "to ensure compliance with the requirements of the GPL", than a tedious way to go against the spirit of the GPL.

You measure "success" by your perceived amount of "fear" and the number of people who don't like it?

No, but I think you can't understand, as you manage to put things out of context here.
"success" is not measured by perceived amount of "fear" and the number of people that don't like sth, that should be obvious to you. I'm still wondering how you came to such a conclusion.
