> know that many of your users would like to see you embrace the technology, and happen to care much more about solving their business problems than about legal arguments about why it's "impossible" It works the other way around too. Many people would like to use solaris but can't since the drivers are missing and care more about solving their business problems than legal arguments why it's "impossible" to solaris to copy those drivers from Linux to solaris. And to remind you, this problem was not created by Linux community or GPLv2, but by SUN. The more paranoid side of community believes the problem was created on purpose. In a hindsight it might seem it's not a problem to sun's customers, since Sun is surely capable of rewriting (who was it again calling NiH?) all drivers needed to run the Sun servers being sold, even if there already is a working GPLv2 driver. However, even Sun systems have these USB/PCI-express expansion slots, where many people would like to attach interesting hardware...
