Apple Now this is material that piques my interest more than anything: insights from one of the bigger names in the industry. Jean-Louis Gassee debunks the "Apple-must-license-its-software-or-die" myth by looking back upon the past - and if you don't know who JLG is, then please take that dunce hat and stand in the corner for three hours, contemplating your existence. Note: OSNews has a bug with using diacritic marks on the front page, so JLG's name is misspelled. It is correctly spelled in the article body.

As much respect & admiration I have for JLG, there's one detail that should be taken into account (and that I haven't seen mentioned so far): during his time as an Apple exec., JLG was one of the people who was most-vehemently opposed to the idea of licensing MacOS to third-parties.

So his words probably shouldn't be taken as entirely-objective on the subject.
