What makes you think that GPL is better than CDDL?. Isn't it a bit like America thinking that Democracy is the best for all nations?. Think about it - the Solaris community DOESN'T WANT GPL!

no, i'm just saying that they have similar goals. What i'm trying to convey is something like during the cold war, china and russia had similar goals/beliefs, so why didn't they become one nation and become more powerful? Just because something is similar to something else doesn't mean it is a good idea, or possible, for them to become one entity.

edit: i picked china and russia because of their easily identified similarities in terms of goals/ideals, not as some sort of social commentary
