Umm Rev....

I'll think a lot more of your argument if you can answer a simple question for me:

On which piece of hardware did that driver run?

You say "the real issue is whether the GPL, or any other license can effectively tackle the challenge of tivoization"

I think you also have to look at whether we even 'should' tackle the challenge of tivoization, at least via a software license.

Jimf -

Yes, I think that is precisely the question.

Remember guys, this is just Part One. Part Two tomorrow. :-) I think I should have revised that statement, since the real issue, though I said so in one of the two parts, is DRM. Tivo is basically just the poster child. You guys might just be surprised by my comments tomorrow.
