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."

This is a good thing. It shows that, regardless of the motives, a license cannot limit anyone willing to write the code to get what they want. If you make the hardware, you can still control that hardware, if you write enough of the code yourself. Just remember that, in the end, someone has to be willing to buy it.

People want Tivos.
People want general purpose computers.
People want iPhones (not posted from my iPhone)

It really isn't anyone's place to tell people what kind of computer they can and can't have.
