Who, Adobe, Pinacle for nog giving away there software, for nog making
Linux versions? Well actually I like that they actuallt make good
software. If they don't like to share I don't have any reason to be
angry on them. There position and there right  to take that position is
as much about freedom as gnu and gpl, i.m.h.o. maybe even a little more.
For Adobe I can make plugins and other additions and spead then exactly
as I like, with GPL I might get forced into GPLing my software.
Personally I perfere BSD, X11 style, and then lgpl...
