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?

I don't know why people don't slam VMWare for keeping their software depend on GTK+ and closed. Or Adobe for keeping their Reader depend on GTK+ and closed or any other company that does so (The Nero burner for example). That's ok for them to have their software closed, nobody seems to care, everything is ok. But on the KDE site the same people keep arguing how evil Trolltech are for charging a small amount of money for those who want to get support.
