GNU Philosophy Drives Libre Licence Model
LXer Editor-in-Chief, Tom Adelstein, wrote about the need to cull the proprietary software from the libre/Open Source software branding. His argument is that developers and vendors should not use libre software as a ruse to get free development and maintenance for their projects. He went on to say that vendors should make real contributions to the community, rather than paying lipservice to the concept. I wholeheartedly agree.
