A few of you may have seen my prior posts about
GPL vs. LGPL
ya just gotta love it when people go on about how the LGPL is “more free” than GPL, and then almost in the same sentence, ballyhoo proprietary software and how it’s bad that some distributions offer it in their repositories.
If you look at the big picture, the real problem with the LGPL is the consequences of it. It naturally leads to more non-free proprietary software. The LGPL is not about free software. It’s about non free software, otherwise they’d use GPL.
