Re:Torvals is CLEARLY off the mark...

Agree with the points both of you make. But if there were no choices, i.e mandated DRM hardware (actually this may be unlikely... so take what I say from here on with a grain of salt) If it's my hardware, I'll run whatever I damn well please. Just as I could run linux on my gamecube, or put monkey island on my palm pilot. Hardware is essentially "petrified" software. If I own either, I'll run it as I please. Otherwise it's not really my hardware nor software... The GPLv3 draft ensures a way, regardless of how hardware cartels feel.

As for misguided viewpoints, I'd rather not demand people think a certain way. Just think for yourself.
