FSF Denies Latest Apple Attempt at APSL

Iscon in Siiscon FSF != Free Software (215 comments)

From Webster's Dictionary:

Free (adj.):

1 d : enjoying personal freedom : not subject to the control or domination of another (think in terms of licenses)
3 a : relieved from or lacking something unpleasant or burdensome

There are just a few definitions that conflict with what the GPL calls "free" .

The GPL places a number of burdens on the use of software licensed under its terms. It's hard to truly innovate when some of the best tools are unavailable because they are shrouded in the GPL. BSD is a far better license, IMNSHO.
