Legal EULAs, and whatever nonsense they may contain, are legally binding in the US. Have a great weekend!

A final thought: How different in attitude are the above EULAs from "either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version" recommended for use with the GPL?


GPLs gives user the ability to choose whatever version of GPL he wants to follow. Quite the opposite from EULA.

You nailed it exactly. That's why my first preference is always for GPL software, and my second preference is for "permissively licensed" software. The rest I simply prefer (and almost always am able) to avoid.
