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?

Um... whatever happened to "use what you want"? GNOME works for me, but there's no point in me pushing it on anybody else if they don't want it. And for the record, I find both the KDE and GNOME communities equally helpful. In fact, the heads of these groups very often work together to help standardize the desktop. It's the 16 year old zit-faced virgins on this site and a couple of others that rage against one side or the other irrationally. It's just a desktop, people. Calm down.

Also, just because GTK+ is written in C doesn't mean it doesn't have C++/PHP/Python/Ruby bindings. I've written little apps for both QT and GTK2 and, although different, both are just as easy to program for.

Why do you think that the flamers are 16 year old zit-faced virgins? It's just pointles stereotyping and name calling. And no I am not 16 year old or zit-faced. ;)

Other than that good post.
