The real priority of Open Source

25 Feb

ZDNet.com has a very interesting article that raises a very simple question: What should be the priority of Open Source? FREE or OPEN?

The free side sees complex software licenses as an enemy, binding each algorithm to different conditions, making real progress impossible.

The open side calls the GPL the “most restrictive” possible license, because it obligates you to offer what you make with GPL tools under the GPL.
