In reply to GuestX:

"The GPL keeps software completely open from the author right the way through to the end-user. "

That in itself is not the problem. The problem is the infectious nature of the licence, which is why many companies will not touch any GPL software at all in the first place (including my current employer and past employers). GPL software can never be part of a larger solution that is not entirely GPL licenced (basically speaking anyway, and the LGPL isn't as "lesser" as some people would have you believe either). You may believe that this is a good thing. I think it's crazy.
