Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
What ESR notably underestimates (or at least does not mention) is the protection the GPL offers to its users, not the developers. No other licence gives the user of a piece of software so many Freedoms. Replace the GPL, take away the Freedom, and the some person is using some piece of software which he can no longer, modify and share, with his/her friends.
It's not the point if Developers need the GPL, WE need the GPL !
