GNU, GPL, Open Source Tim Butler knew when he mentioned something negative about the GNU Project's General Public License (GPL), in his column on KDE last week, he would inevitably be accused of arguing the GPL was a bad license. What did not fit into that piece shall now be dealt with: is the GPL a bad license or is the issue he complained about something else?

You don't have to understand. It's just propaganda, it's not meant to be understood, just accepted.

Perception is reality, and if you can pump out enough stupid propaganda, the drones without brains out there will be more than happy to take it as gospel, and pass it on as "the truth".

If you are abel to color your competitor with "dying", or "user hostile", "bloated" or any other negative adjective it doesn't matter that your own stuff is inferior. People will never find out for themselves, but rather use what everyone else is using, or what they think everyone else is using, and thus go with the buzz.
