Concerns about Linux future
#6
All software and source-code which is released for free use under copyright/copyleft is just that... FREE! Let them do as they like, attempting to turn it into a closed product. Just take the freely usable code already out there and fork off, changing the name and writing fresh independently developed code to imitate any "new" features. You have to understand that LibreOffice was once OpenOffice was once StarOffrice which was released as freeware by Sun Microsystems in retaliation for some perceived misdeed by their competitor Microsoft, who at the time was charging many hundreds of dollars for a single user license for Microsoft Office.

Once the cat is out of the bag, no-one's going so be able to put it back.
