They do not use the terms "absolute" and "ever".

Btw. if there are already a lot of GPL licensed libraries and kernel
abilities available for a project of some domain, that are not
available by such an amount, if at all by another licensed
infrastructure, it could become very expensive to create the required

Those who make a living from whatever licensed software probably have
reasons to chose a particular license. Some probably chose the wrong
license by mistake, other chose a license that is good for them and
their customers.

I can't see that you are that successful with your business, as the
coder of Ardour is with his business. That might be a wrong conclusion,
let alone that the software license not necessarily is the reason for
more or less success. However, you are seemingly not programming in all
