Mac OS X When you run smbd -V on your Snow Leopard installation, you'll see it's running SAMBA version 3.0.28a-apple. While I'm not sure how much difference the "-apple" makes, version 3.0.28a is old. Very old. In other words, it's riddled with bugs. Apple hasn't updated SAMBA in 3 years, and for Lion, they're dumping it altogether for something homegrown. The reason? SAMBA is now GPLv3.

Nonsense.

if you are going to do one, you have to do it with all the necessary details and forms.


Only if you want to impose additional restrictions and clauses, such as what the GPL does.

The FSF released the GPLv3, approved by the Software Freedom Law Center.


Wow. Impressive! or not. They approved their own license, pretty much.

I hope you remember this next time you call someone "closet lawyer"


Yeah, I'll remember not to poke fun at RMS again. Honestly. It seems it's a sensitive topic.

Let me repeat that if you are going to do contracts, do them well, with all the necessary details and forms, with the supervision of a lawyer every time there is a substantially different contract than can have big effects. If you don't do it, sooner or later you'll learn it the hard way.

You talked like if it was only a "closet lawyer" who made GPLv3, I showed you it was not this way. I gave you data. You can say "Wow" the times you want.
