Legal The entire complaint Oracle lobbed at Google has been available online for a while now, and after reading it through with my total lack of any knowledge of the inner workings of the American legal system, a few things did stand out to me as peculiar. We'll have to wait for a more detailed analysis by someone qualified to do so. Also, a few other notes about this case I've picked up online.

Duh... Corporate lawsuits are just about money. Open source advocates seem to think think their software is synonymous with Freedom but I don't mind paying for the goods and services I use. In fact those whose primary goal in life is to spend as little as possible are similar to those whose goals are the accumulation of as much wealth as possible. Sadly many Americans worship the dollar -- a form of idolatry.

Again. Free software isn't about zero price, it's about liberty. From the horse's mouth: http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/selling.html

I agree that many Americans^H^H^H^H^H humans worship the dollar^H^H^H^H local currency, and it's a form of idolatry, and it's sad. But compare the lifestyle of Bill Gates to that of rms, and it's just weird for you to effectively claim that the latter is all about "the accumulation of as much wealth as possible".
