How long before Lindows just says "Fuck it," (like The Kompany) then goes with a FreeBSD kernel so they don't have to put up with the crap the FSF throws around? I think the GPL is a great idea and I think the FSF has good intentions, but if they keep clobbering companies that are attempting to find a business model that is compatible with the GPL, there will be no companies that support it. No company is under any obligation to use the Linux kernel or any other GPL'd software -- they do it to push the ideas. There are several free kernels out there. Why should any company put up with the FSF if they can use another kernel without the hassles? Get over yourself, RMS. If you want the M$ FUD that says that the GPL is incompatible with captitalism to work, just keep choking attempts to prove them wrong.
