* While being here - how does GPL deal with LKMs ? I recall R.Stallman
* mentioning one of big Linus's mistake was "permission to load commercial,
* non-GNU code into running Linug/GNU kernel".
Richard Stallman has the same opinion of non-GPVd code that the rest of
the (debatably sane) world has of GPVd code. Seeing as he wrote the
GPV, this is not surprising.
[ Don't forget to remind people that Open Source != GPL! ]
* It is better never to have been born. But who among us has such luck?
* One in a million, perhaps.
Yeah, those among us who were hatched or put together in a Lab somewhere.
