Correct me if I am mistaken, but the driver is not __entirely__ under GLP!! When you download the source ("The last resort "), you get some binaries too.

I don't think that's a nice way to support OpenSource.

The amount they are charging (15$) is simply too much. It might seem like peanuts to many on this board, but it still is a fairly big amount for many people from developing nations. btw, no matter where you are, you can get a brand new linux supported softmodem for almost the same cost, so I don't see linuxant's rationale behind charging so much for the driver. Something around 5$ would seem more sensible, but well, I don't think I have much of a say in this matter! Oh, and I don't think linuxant is going to get much support from the open-source community for their actions. They are selling a purely commercial product, I don't think it even qualifies as open-source.
