I'm just going to copy and paste this quote from Linuxtoday from a comment on a story on Xandros. I had posted basically the same feeeling here
Linux today quote:
"We already have enough distros mixing small amounts of proprietary code in with their distro. I think I'll pass. I certainly don't want to ever live to see the day when all linux distros are in some small part proprietary. At that point what's the point of the GPL anyway? The license just becomes a marketing tool when really they are just paying lip service. Kinda like Apple does, but at least Apple is using code specifically licensed for that purpose.
Linux ain't BSD, so I wish these companies would stop basing their distros on mostly GPL code. The people who make up the vast majority of any linux distro usually choose the GPL license for a reason. For that reason I will continue to campaign against companies like Xandros, Suse, and Lindows who are restricting the ability to modify and redistribute code. "
Words to live by.
