I'm just pointing out that you are acting like a sociopath.
Which is false, by definition.
A license (contract) is supposed to be a "meeting of minds"; perverting the intention of the contract terms is a sociopathic thing to do.
Again, false. Prove to me how tivoization is a perversion of the contract terms. The "meeting of minds" in this case is the author of Linux and the user of Linux, that fact that you think the author of the GPL has anything to do with it demonstrates you have no idea about contracts whatsoever, so don't pretend to be able to discuss them.
To whom what? Linus has made it clear to anybody who has bothered to ask or read his posts.
Clearly. If they didn't care theyd' never have released a GPLv3 specifically to close that loop hole in what they wrote vis-a-vis their intent. Oh wait... they did release a GPLv3. Guess they cared.
And that's why it's the GPLv3 and not v2, and you're free to use v3 if you want in your software, v2 is used for the kernel whether you like it or not.
Its impossible to say what Linus would have done at 22 years old in 1992 if the GPL had been slightly differently worded.
If it were v3 it would not have been "tit for tat" and by definition would not have fit Linus' principles.
You are saying the same person that you argue thought tivoization was a good thing when he selected GPL was against any commercial use at all just a few months earlier? That doesn't add up.
Now you've gone full retard, he made the change because he wanted to change, if he didn't want commercial use then he wouldn't have selected the GPLv2.
1) That Linus in 2007 isn't really the same kid that picked GPLv2 for his experimental kernel project in 1992.
Which is obvious and irrelevant, it makes no difference to anything whatsoever.
2) That Linus in 1992 wasn't really making pro-tivoization arguments in 1992 when he selected that license.
Tivo didn't even exist then so you're just stating the obvious.
Ultimately you have no point, don't understand the GPL, don't understand what a contract is and instead of getting educated you decide to call me a sociopath as an excuse for your own mental limitations.
The GPLv2 exists to protect the 4 freedoms, that is its goal, if you think it is supposed to do more then you just fail to understand it.
