All of his products are also closed source, which leads one to question
even his loyalty to the linux ideal in the first place. It's nice that
you can download his software and use it for free for `non-commerical'
use, but I no longer use software that I can't have the source for. In
fact, as long as I have the source code, I don't even care if the
programme is proprietary. Indeed, I had near heartbreak since my favourite
editor, nedit, was closed source ... until recently. With version 5.1, it
is now under the GPL.
Open Source has spoiled me, and that's a good thing.
