Lol, you bit. I read that comment and had my nerves pinched too, but on closer observation saw only a juicy worm wriggling tempingly on the end of a hook and line.Originally posted by kilowatt
Darn it, you always have to pinch my nerves!
Huh? I don't understand what you're getting at. Don't mix statements about the GPL and BSD licenses though, as they are completely different beasts. The BSD license as I understand it allows anyone to do what the hell they like with the code, including incorporation into closed source proprietary products. Where as the GPL does not.Originally posted by strobe
You can't close open source, that's a myth. Once something is in the public domain, you can't remove it. You can't, for example, 'steal' source code which is public domain or under the BSD license, well unless you use RMS's definition of 'steal'. (waa, you used my code in a product you charge money for. I want my code back...you buglar!)
