wow, I'll bite. What reason do the suits have for saying yes to LGPL on
say Linux, but no on "platforms such as OSX and Windows"? Or did I
misunderstand? Don't mean to divert into a tangent, but after researching
to heck out licenses, I was going with LGPL for some things I'm releasing,
and therefor particularly interested in what sort of non-logic is going
around in who knows what legal magazine this week.
