CDDL might not be a free license, but neither is GPL. Both restrict their users in a way that quite a lot of people do not like. Yes, you might now argue that GPL does that to ensure that the source will be always public. But that view is shortsighted. Just have a look how many problems the BSD people have with GPL software, although they write open source software too. Or as an other example, have a look at the problems the MPlayer project had with GPL until all code it used was relicensed under GPL. Or to cite Arpi on an never published interview for "Brave GNU World" on the question what his biggest problems were when developing MPlayer: "The GPL"
