I want to toy around with free software.
See how it works.
Improve it, probably send in patches.
Just for the fun of it.
One important freedom is the possibility to combine source code from different projects. Either by just assembling a distribution, or mixing features. And all these funny new licenses just make this complicated. A restriction here, a legal hassle there, and all just good intensions.
GOOD INTENSIONS MY ASS!
Fragmentation is one of the worst things that can happen to the free software scene. Morality of usage has nothing to do with freedom of source.

I am talking about freedom of speech and thought.
Do you really consider ideas to be weapons?
