Windows Well, well, well. We all know Apple's App Store policies are incompatible with the GPL, and as such, software using this license can't be distributed in the App Store. So, what about Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 Marketplace? Well, whereas the App Store doesn't specifically mention the GPL (Apple's terms are simply incompatible), Microsoft drops the pretence and simply bans GPL and GPL-esque licenses outright.

Enough of the emotionally loaded rhetoric and inappropriate political/ideological analogies. It's just software.

Software is a vitally important component of the most powerful invention mankind has made since language.

It's a big fucking deal.

IF you're ten years old with a completely unrealistic world view since you're still having life paid for by mommy and daddy.

Which is the ONLY way you could put software in such terms. Lemme guess, you actually think OLPC was a good idea?
