Nonsense. The LGPL's sole reason for existence is that the GPL does not allow dynamic linking, while the LGPL does.
Never underestimate the delusional power of the fandroids.
Wow...talk about a bad few days for the fandroids: http://www.businessweek.com/technolo...324_269784.htm
I think your fears are misplaced. Ask yourself the following questions: 1) Since the "iOSification" of the Mac, has it become less "open", or "more"? Did the Mac App Store reduce the options you have? Is Lion less, or more, open than Snow Leopard? My answers - The mac has clearly become more open. Mac App store has not reduced what you can install by a bit. On the other hand, Apple has gone ahead and included Mac OS Server in the regular Lion install. And if...
In the "open" folks' defense, I think Apple is far too "closed" (whatever that may mean). I think the Walled Garden approach for the iPhone Apps was a great idea when the App Store was released. Lets not forget, that until that point, the idea of a phone, for which anyone could develop software, and sell to others, was rather niche (basically, just a few WinMo and Palm users, but more importantly, none of those phones allowed the extent of computing Apple did). So it...
Actually, MS is doing pretty well with the XBox. Although they failed with the Zune, the primary reason was that they were too late, since they wasted time trying the old ways with their PlayForSure initiatives. Still, the Zune continues to benefit them, because its that experience which they based their WP7 UI around. If MS creates its own device on WP7 (which is what the Nokia deal I think might effectively be), they will be very competitive.
Get DTerm from the Mac App Store. Your life will be transformed!
If thats the case, then why doesn't Google extinguish all the FUD by indemnifying its licence partners? What Google has done here is amazing. They have basically created this patent time bomb, and told others to pick it up. For FREE! Let their partners handle all the legal risks, while they continue minting money off the Google Ads Android generates. I love how MOT, HTC, etc. simply fell for it.
Didn't you know? Random Fandroid message board poster's speculation is OBVIOUSLY more accurate than the InfoWeek reporter's informed speculation. I mean, as opposed to the Fandroid, who made great efforts to go deep into his emotions to come up with his speculation, all the reporter had was a source in Motorola, and an analyst at Deutsche Bank, who gets paid big bucks simply to follow the company. Clearly the fandroid's guts know far more about Motorola's plans.
Shhh....Telling the FSF zealot that some people actually create SW for money is like telling a kid that Santa Claus doesn't exist. You must have crushed its spirit.
