Re:Switch to FreeBSD

It really is sad, but true.
Everyone here seems to think that just because it is based on "freesoftware" that he is required to release the source.
You GPL Nazi's need to realize that the BSD license that he appears to be using for his "forked" version of wine does not require release.
He has REAL freedom, to do what he wants with it.
How can someone steal what is considered "free"?
The move of wine to a gpl license was a bad move imho. These companies contributed code back when they were NOT required to.
Yet they are some how still "evil".
So I recommend you GPListas go read the X11 license, and the old wine license before you get all upset and wake your parents. :)
