You're right. I shouldn't get upset by people who choose to believe things that aren't true. I apologize.
I understand the definition of journalism you're using. However, I do not believe that it's necessary to be negative at all times.
In this case, Tim had a pleasant conversation with the CTO of a company that releases the software it develops for free, under the LGPL.

Re portmanteaus: Anybody can create one. For instance, I could coin "Slashcretin" to describe some of our less intelligent readers.
But since I am supposed to absorb abuse, but never supposed to react to it, I will not use the word "Slashcretins" to describe even the most foul-mouthed, ignorant Slashdot readers. (And no, you are not one.)
So have a nice day, and thank you for your input. :)
