Mrchocky:

You could be right about the GPL vs. Castle license. The GPL2 vs. GPL3 issue is shaping up to further muddy the waters - GPL3 is very much about preventing hardware lockdown (Tivoisation) of software in embedded systems, and so is pretty much designed to be incompatible with licenses like Castle's. If the Linux community stick with GPL2, as seems likely, the applications communities (especially for hardware drivers) may do so too and the GPL3-specific problems may not in practice matter to us. (caveat: as has been noticed, my thoughts are not always sensible).
