   Seems to be a backlash against the GPL lately - slashdot has posted numerous
   articles on freebsd, which invariably say that "the gpl is evil (blah blah),
   and use freebsd because it's better.  <insert holy war here>".

There has been a backlash against the GPL since at least ten years
ago, which is when I started paying attention to it.  It's nothing
new.  As you say, it's a holy war.
