yes, obviously. and vice versa, perhaps?

We want good educational software for our kids/endusers.
We do prefer free software.

well, i think i can speak for the absolut majority of debian-edu
that we did not even know of the existance for Mr. Kay until you
mentioned him. we took the initiative to push for a license
change for squeak because we would like to distribute it. Does
that imply doing buissness with him?

The point in my mail was that i was hoping for a time estimate of
the process to change the squeak license towards a DFSG compatible

i did not care about disneys past involvement specifically
because i concluded from the wiki page in the previous mail that
the squeak people were on top of things and some kind of licence
changing process was underway. i thought you were watching things
more closely and could provide further information
