GNU, GPL, Open Source "A new analysis of licensing data shows that not only is use of the GPL and other copyleft licenses continuing to decline, but the rate of disuse is actually accelerating." This shouldn't be surprising. The GPL is complex, and I honestly don't blame both individuals and companies opting for simpler, more straightforward licenses like BSD or MIT-like licenses.

I can clearly see that this used to be BeNews.
The same attitudes where in #beos on efnet aswell.
Where Linux was open sores etc.

And now they think they can stay loyal to their company by doing BSD.

Yeah code away, and let the company not even feed you, letting you die, and stagnate both progress for the company and yourself.

Gee, what a genious. And if you think Buddha has anything to do with such evil, you are even more stupid.

But yeah there is a lot of people online, who lack the critical thinking, and even attribute these things as if they were benevolent, when any such person would posess infinitely greater knowledge.

Eh? This, mening this site? No, factually incorrect. BeNews was a completely different site that ran in parallel with this one for years. The only common threads that Eugenia was once managing editor of both sites (but at different times.)

BeOS wasn't open source either. You are a complete moron. All of the code for BeOS was closed, save Tracker (opened late in the day) and some of the stuff to to with Binder (from BeIA) that Palm opened.

Wherever you say BeOS, replace it with "haiku" and you ate closer to reality.
