hahaha it's not free? it fits everyone craze definitions.

Just because it'snot compatible with the GPL, your beloved GPL that you have stabled to the walls of your home, you think it's not free. The additional protections that protect organizations and companies (as well as consumers) isn't good? ..there are loads of licneses not compatible with the GPL. big deal.

..."uh huh, that aint free, it aint compatible wit da gpl" Open your mind brother because the GPL is not the constitution of your country therefore you dont have to worship it

Even the Free Software Foundation says that the CDDL is a free software license. You can find it under here:

Congratulations, your post is the most ignorant post I'ver ever seen.

hahaha it's not free? it fits everyone craze definitions.

What is that supposed to mean? I think the word you were looking for is crazy not craze but then that sentence still makes no sense.

Just because it'snot compatible with the GPL, your beloved GPL that you have stabled to the walls of your home, you think it's not free.

Stabled? What? Do you mean stapled? Now it makes sense, it's just a dumb comment.

The additional protections that protect organizations and companies (as well as consumers) isn't good?

I guess you are referring to the GPL and no they are not good because the GPL protects the user and the developer. Propietary licenses just protect companies at the expense of the user and developer.

there are loads of licneses not compatible with the GPL. big deal.

This is true. Nothing else to see here. Just because there are "loads of licenses not compatible with the GPL" doesn't mean that any one of them is better than the GPL. It doesn't mean the opposite either. In fact it doesn't actually mean anything.

..."uh huh, that aint free, it aint compatible wit da gpl" Open your mind brother because the GPL is not the constitution of your country therefore you dont have to worship it

This definitely takes the cake. The GPL is not the constitution? Thanks for the history lesson. Let me let you in on a little secret, if you are worshipping the constitution then you need to get a life. The state is not a religion. The constitution is also extremely flawed and not something I think even an idiot should worship.
