SubjectRe: Why is Nvidia given GPL'd code to use in closed source drivers?
Date
if i were a big monopolistic company that has recently (openly) began 
to worry about the threat of linux taking some of my market share, i
would create an explosive topic on the kernel mailing list and begin
dividing up the developers using political agenda such as this. little
by little, the cracks in the foundation would start giving way to
larger debates. finally, simple ideology would create a divide that
causes the developers to choose "sides" and then fragmentation would
occur. the ultimate outcome: the unix syndrome. perhaps this is not
such a case, but it may as well be from what i have read. sometimes
not giving your opinion is worth more than winning a debate. think
about it.
