The Miles Sound System is a game sound API that does more than just play a single MP3. It plays lots and lots at once, with spacial geometry, allowing accurate 2D and 3D sound to be produced. Many, many games use RAD Tools' stuff, this likely wont be a Valve-only issue but one facing a lot of game companies should they port to linux.

Well, since you and the other replier seem so intent on taking my comment out of context I will help you.

Yes, there are things that are excluded from being enforced within a contract. But just because one party of the contract wants things to be different, doesn't mean the other party has to allow it. There can simply be no contract and no license given. They are demanding particular things that some software makers are simply not willing to give and as a consequence taking that denial of license as a right to do with the software as they wish.

Can I simply not agree with the GPL and use the software/code anyway? The original parent's argument seems along these lines.

You aren't thinking the 'next step' in this.

Bra as a service
The best support you could hope for, exactly when you need it.

Of course, MS would need to really work on their support, the few times I have had to contact them for real tech issues, they have wanted to charge me before I could even leave a bug report.
