LOL!

Summary:

"For those who have been reading/hearing Stallman for the past
10-plus years as I have, this admission is shocking in the extreme. The GPL, which is supposed to be the ultimate guarantor of software freedom, may deliver the opposite. Because of its control-freak urges, it can stymie competition,
 which is presumably why Stallman is now calling on the
European Commission to grant what his license couldn't:
freedom."

LMAO!
A rather absurd diatribe apparently based on confusing "fork" with "dual-licensing".

Dak, dak, dak. Stallman told the European Commission that

"the lack of a more flexible license for MySQL will present considerable barriers to a new forked development path for MySQL"

Read it again, silly dak:

THE LACK OF A MORE FLEXIBLE LICENSE FOR MYSQL WILL PRESENT CONSIDERABLE BARRIERS TO A NEW FORKED DEVELOPMENT PATH FOR MYSQL.

I've been telling all along that the GPL is unlawful anticompetitive conspiracy blatantly violating Article 81 EC.

Thanks a bunch to Richard Stallman for openly admiting it.

As I've said a thousand times, no matter how Free Softies try to spin,
spin and spin they will never be able to re-define the meaning of "free".

The long socialist political campaign of the Free Software Foundation
(and its history of astroturfing misinformation and outright lies) is
rapidly crumbling. Goodbye Moglen, Stallman and PJ -- and good
riddance to all the lies. Soon open source software will begin to
realize its true potential.

Sincerely,
Rjack
