+ - Why Zed Shaw uses (A/L)GPL

Submitted by Henry V .009
Henry V .009 (518000) writes "From Zed Shaw's newest rant: Honestly, how many of you people who use open source tell your boss what you're using? How many of you tell investors that your entire operation is based on something one guy wrote in a few months? How many of you out there go to management and say, "Hey, you know there's this guy Zed who wrote the software I'm using, why don't we hire him as a consultant?" You don't. None of you. You take the software, and use it like Excalibur to slay your dragon and then take the credit for it. You don't give out any credit, and in fact, I've ran into a vast majority of you who constantly try to say that I can't code as a way of covering your ass."
