I'm sorry, I don't exactly follow your argument. Let me put it this way: what are we afraid
of? Are we afraid that if we start happily using Nexenta -- a Free, Open Source kernel, Free,
Open Source libc and libraries, and a complete Free, Open Source userland, that this will
somehow lead to Microsoft taking over Firefox?
I am not trying to be provocative here, but I just don't understand why fear, uncertainty, and
doubt about some subtle hypothetical issue is important enough to cause people to avoid using
and contributing to a beautiful, Free, Open Source set of tools.
As I understand it, the designers of the GPL v2 did not intend for the GPL to cause this sort
of incompatibility, and they did not think that the GPL v2 did cause such incompatibility, but
since some people were apparently afraid that GPL v2 might do so, they further clarified GPL
v3 in order to assuage people's concerns.
