Why EULAs are good for Free Software

Shane Coughlan writes "Recently I read an article about the new Windows Vista EULA. It's really something else. This agreement brings 'restrictive' to a whole new level, and I think that's good news for Free Software. Windows Vista will only allow you to re-register the software once. Windows Vista will not allow you to run virtualisation unless you buy the expensive professional licenses. Windows Vista will not allow you to publish benchmark figures without following strict Microsoft guidelines. It's amazing."
