    Sigh! I have heard that often enough... Anyhow i would prefer a binary
    only driver to being forced to shift a project to WinNT or some other M$
    crap any time of day.

    Sometimes i wonder if it was a wise decision to put Linux under GPL and
    not using something like a modified BSD copyright...

    Just in case you don't know: some companies don't port their commercial
    software to linux because the license of the C/C++ library would force
    them to provide the customer with the source code. No joke!
