Think tank blasts Linux as unsuitable for government, business use

Here we go again. From the think tank critique: "A second problem is the creation of applications for Linux. The General
Public License that controls the program s distribution can be paraphrased
as thou shalt not charge for this program and its source code shall be
public. This license is also viral; if you write an ap for Linux, and
incorporate any code covered by the GPL, then your ap is also subject to
the GPL, and it too becomes open source and free."
