Fight for Freedom - Long Live Linux!

Posted 09-03-2011 at 05:22 AM by ThisOldMan

Alright, that might seem to be a tad melodramatic. However it expresses my sentiments quite succinctly. Man was not born to be slaves to other men. Not that other men would not try and keep on trying to enslave other men.

Cyberspace is a realm without borders. Therefor, the way I see it, there is no reason to pollute the virtual landscape with proprietary software. After all, what is the point of living somewhere where the horizon is further than you can see, when you are still tethered and chained by licenses that do not allow you to explore the full potential of your environment?

So, I say it again, loud and clear,

Fight for Freedom,
Long Live Linux!

    Right...the GPL enforces slavery, only the other way around. It's preferable to proprietary licenses, though, because you don't have to pay for it, right?

    What about the developer? What if he decides to release the binaries of his modifications, but not the source? Less freedom still, isn't it?

    The BSD/ISC licenses are freedom. GPL is not.
