Advice to Linux: Dump the GPL

  • NewsForge (Posted by dave on Aug 24, 2004 3:40 AM EDT)
  • Story Type: News Story
BusinessWeek columnist Stephen Wildstrom recently wrote a piece called A Big Fly in the Open-Source Soup that concluded, "The future of commercial open source might be considerably brighter if Linux and other programs went to a more commerce-friendly license with fewer complexities and ambiguities than the GPL." At the risk of offending a great many NewsForge readers, I am going to say that I don't disagree with him. Not because of the alleged complexity or ambiguities of the GPL -- it's a piece of cake compared to a typical proprietary EULA -- but because I don't understand what he means by the term "commercial open source." If he had simply said "open source" -- or used the more definitive phrase "free software" -- I would reject his position outright.

After a month of use, I've decided Linux is okay but not perfect

Last month I decided to switch from Windows to Linux full-time.
