Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu "This follow-up to the previously published article 'Ubuntu: Derivative or Fork?' takes into account most of everything that has been posted as a reaction to the first article to present a general opinion and compare them with facts derived from various resouces. You'll see that peace can be achieved between these two, and ultimately any GNU/Linux group out there."

"You are right and noone is disputing that you have a choice and wont be forced not to produce proprietary software, that is license it as such, but we wont consider that to be a right choice because yes, it is oppressive, it is a monopoly and it is way of ethical balance between a creator and user which many times is also a creator."

Wow. So when I create software and attach a license that says "users are not allowed to use this program to build nuclear weapons or torture devices" (which restricts usage and thus makes it GPL-incompatible and "non-Free"), I am a oppressive monopolist and unethical? You are questioning my freedom to apply my moral values to my creations.
