Apple Do you like VLC on your iPhone or iPad? You don't yet have it installed, but want to? Well, then you'd better be quick about it, as some VLC contributors are unhappy with the fact that VLC is distributed through Apple's App Store, violating the GPL the video player is licensed under. At least, that's what some think.

Yes, but I pointed it out in the article, and like 5 times in this comment thread alone. At some point, even I lost my patience.

And I'm usually quite lovable. Want a ponyride and a hug*?
