Just a small question for Bernie. How come you spend so much time defending the GPL while you yourself decided not to use it but rather get yourself a special license for Amithlon?
"Yes, we are using UAE's CPU emulation. We are also using UAE's FPU emulation. Before we started work on this thing, Harald contacted the respective authors, and they agreed to grant us a non-GPL licence to these pieces of code. So while we are using code that also was released under the GPL, we are not using the GPL'ed version. OK?"

So at the same time as you defend it, you personally avoid it. How come? Just curious.
