druck: "Typical unthinking GPL zealot response, well done."

A typical mud-slinging remark in response to a proper critique of the original FUD-slinging statement. Both that statement and your perception that "donationware" schemes are the only basis for funding products which are licensed under the GPL reveal, as I noted, a lack of understanding or experience in such matters on your part.

Sure, MW might not want to "go near the Xara source", but since that's a business decision he alone must take, I'm not about to overgeneralise that in order to take some kind of cheap, uninformed shot at a software licence that would seem to suit Xara and other companies just fine.
