GPL is not Linux specific, and I don't see that stopping anyone. If it came
down to it, who do you think is going to take the fall ... some poor smuck,
who can't afford his pants, or the big corporations? It'll always come down
to politics, no matter what, and the winning arguement in politics is and
always will be "it's gonna cost jobs". The world is full of rip off stories,
and con stories ... and even the GPL is now being "addressed" as non-valid.
