Gnome unethical

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 18, 2007 03:28 AM
Gnome is unethical software. It is GPL but the culture of developers is often nasty. I mean, I just remind you how dirty the Ximian guys put forward advocacy against the other Desktop Environment and think in terms of plattform loyalty. And think about a company as redhat. Gnome people got all the corporate guys involved and that also meant bad habits.

Linus is right. It is not just about licensing but also ethics.
