How is this not open?
As I said yesterday: It's not open because I can't simply copy code
from GPL'd projects or other OSS sources without causing a lot of
And since we all know human nature, we know it's just a matter of time
until something will blow up.
I know that you can't change that; but at the same time, I will never
be happy with legal issues creeping into my work. Try to bear my
occasional sarcastic comment about this :-)
PS: It took the AROS project three years to select a "good" OSS
license: We wrote our own ;-) Or rather modified the Mozilla license.
At college, I took lessons in "Law and Data Privacy". I wrote an Amiga
OS clone (while Amiga, Inc. was watching unhappily). I need to
complain about legal stuff once in a while or I won't get 50...
