That was a good lunch. I had toast.
Legally this is problematic, as without a license, nobody has any permission to distribute the software. Github can, certainly, as the author gave permission explicitly, but copyright is "default-deny" - there's no distribution permitted without explicit permission.
So, an eeebil corporation (or anyone else) can't take your work at all. They'd be in the wrong if they did. Similarly, if you took the work, changed it, and redistributed it, you'd also be in the wrong. Plain copyright applies unless overridden.
I had not heard that Simcity was going to be always-online DRM'd. That's a little sad; I was looking forward to it. I hope that they change that policy.

You kids and your newfangled five digit slashdot UIDs and your fancy toggle switches. We had to walk uphill both ways to get our ones from the butcher, and the zeros were delivered by the donkeycart every second Tuesday.
Grow up. When you want to deploy software to hundreds or thousands of machines, you have to be pretty sure that you won't get paged in the middle of the night because someone's favourite web page doesn't work, or because FF broke a plugin that hasn't had an update yet.
It's not about the version numbers, it's about having stable point releases that we can rely on. FF's new release cycle doesn't give us any assurance that their newest version is simply a maintenance update, or introduces new features that could cause serious issues.
I work at a university library, and the staff here are big fans of Firefox, but it's my job to make sure that I don't roll out software to them that causes problems for them. If I just roll out every
If nothing else, there's always USB keys. Now pushing 128GB. My coworkers and I trade entire television shows pretty regularly.
