A very important distinction needs to be made here all the above (including
your use as sys/netadmin) are essentially end user applications and thus
there revenue is derived from means other then selling the code they
develop. Apple is first and foremost a hardware company, Netflix is a
content company, NetApp sales raw disk space (btw I should thank them for
As a *programmer* I make my living from writing code and the fundamental
problem with GPL is it forces me to give away the one way I make a living
(I do not sell hardware, IT services, movie rentals, etc.). How is it

thing I need/use to survive?
