Yes. I guess I think of compiling as just a form of modification, and distributing as meaning the source.
Right, you have to pass along the same freedoms you got. But only if you modify and distribute, and only to those to whom you distribute.
Copyleft's strings say, 'you can use my stuff, as long as you give back what you make from it.'
Over and over this is repeated. It is false. A better statement would be: "you can use my stuff, as long as you pass along your freedoms to anyone you give it to if you modify it"
Protest the imaging of first class mail by placing your stamp upside down.
Why should they know basic concepts of encryption? Frankly, that's a subject that the vast majority of developers never need to worry about.
That's what I'm saying; you don't need to read the EULA.

He not only makes the unrelated point, but then goes on with nonsense about when you do need to choose a password:
Even if we entertained the XKCD comic and started training users to select four random words...[w]hat is there to prevent âoeletmeinfacebookâ from being the new most common four word password for Facebook accounts?
Bzzzt. Failure to understand the meaning of the word "random" rules you out as an authority on passwords.
No, we need such a command line tool or possibly library with a command line tool wrapped around it. The GUI is entirely optional and certainly shouldn't be bundled.
You lost me at "Windows".
So, you think the trade publishers would be fine with exclusivity and their only beef is the money? I think differently.
