Hi Jim, I have posted a message on the general@incubator mailing list, but I haven't seen it going through, where I was trying to point out that no one has got the end user POV.

I'm first and foremost an end user, so I'm not concerned about the license as far this doesn't allow corporations like IBM to keep their predatory attitude vs end users.

So, my stance for copyleft is very practical: proprietary software predates basic end users, like myself, obfuscating problems and code, and I think that the only way to avoid this is to force corporations to use copyleft (I know, they'll never accept, but at ths point I prefer them to pay for all the development and related activities).

No ideology here, just a weak individual (like many) against a borg.

Ciao, Italo
