Now for a different PoV:
Do I think Tivoisation is bad for the community ?
Of course I think it is but your mileage may vary.
And I happen to agree with you. What I disagree with is taking steps to
make "bad == illegal". I also have a problem with doing things that force my
viewpoint on other people.
Surely it's more:
bad == go away and don't use future improvements to our software anymore please.
*If* you think it's bad (Linus doesn't as far as the kernel goes) then isn't it
reasonable to exclude 'bad for the community' from the community?
This isn't retroactive - they can continue to use any V2 software they had, they
wouldn't be able to use V3 developments.
That seems to me to be a very, very reasonable thing to do (and very much *not*
bad == illegal IMHO)
PS well, I was just seeing if anyone had fixed my libata/md bug yet but this
seemed more interesting.
PPS and Tejun has, I'm off...
