GPL is not against profit, it is pro freedom.    (05)

This not an informed statement.    (06)

I am getting sick of this discussion :    (07)

What software is available for Online Hypertext
Systems? What license is it under? 
Who has time to contribute to it? What license would
you be willing to put your work under?
GPL is my answer, and I would like to see some of
these ideas that implemented in a way that we can use.    (08)

People just like compaining about "free software"
because they cannot make a quick buck off it like BSD
licensed code.
More people dont want to make a honest contribution,
just take, take, take, complain, complain, complain.    (09)

But if they need a compiler they are really happy that
the GCC is there and works fine!    (010)
