BOTH Microsoft AND Tibco twisted something (and here Tibco on its advertising). And missed the key, from start...

Free Software dont need joint ventures nor companies acquiring to interoperate, it just need compatible software

What they claim is "I can't use "R", because "R" is GPL licenced, so I done something I claim an R implementation". Instead of "I can't use "R", because what I call my license which essentially impair my users is obviously not compatible with GPL, so I let a try to continue to impair my users more and fill them with
bullshit to say that the right way to interoperate is mine"
