GNU, GPL, Open Source Some people swore to me that just because the free-software General Public License (GPL) clashes with the Apple App Store's Terms of Service (ToS), didn't mean that Apple would actually pull down GPLed apps. Well, Apple just did. Remi Denis-Courmont, a Linux developer of the popular VLC media player, has just announced that Apple had pulled the popular GPLed VLC media player from its App Store.

RE[4]: That isn't quite right

So the f'tards at VLC got what they deserved, and now they lose out. I just feel for the dev who spent his time only to have VLC screw him over - they were the ones who whinged when the essence of GPL was not being inhibited.

Well, the only dev "losing out" is the guy who wasted his time doing the port.
