        The people who need to know that "Get Source Code" information 
are the latest migrants from the Windows world -- GUI only users.
        These guys use "Linux" (1). They have no idea about how/what/why
about Free Software or the GNU/Linux project. This button will tell 
those people "This is defintely Free Software".

        I think this is a typical "knee jerk" reaction to the Morpheus's
attempt to evade GPL.


1: I call it GNU/Linux -- but currently was referring to the Redhat
   "Linux" , Mandrake "Linux", SuSe "Linux" and Caldera "Linux".
