Comment: Well they have a point (Score 3) 373 373

As much as I love Open Source I can see their point and I can't counter it. If we continue this fragmentation is it really going to benefit android or will it cause harm? If the goal is usage, which it is, then this is one way to enforce some standards and drive that goal. If the goal was software freedom it would be another story. But we knew this going in, it was never the goal.

Well I see your point but I disagree. It's not confiscation because Google would still own the copyright and this would be their choice to open source it.

I think the FSF approach is this - imagine a world where instead of hiding information and ideas, which is what source code is, we share those ideas and move forward so much faster. It's not in the name of security you see, it's in the name of freedom and moving humanity forward that much faster. You don't have to agree with it. It's idealistic, but some of us are.

Comment: Re:wrong place for my bandsite (Score 2) 336 336

The irony is myspace seems to be the place all musical artists go to these days, with facebook being an afterthought. I do concert and show promotion as a side business and I see tons of myspace band sites still. Facebook doesn't really cater to them like myspace did. It's ashame.
