I agree - it's unfortunate for Linux that Sun chose a license that the GPL is incompatible with, but they were entirely within their rights to do so. My only objection is to the repeatedly raised "Linux people hate dtrace for irrational reasons" type claims. Linux vendors feel they can't ship dtrace for justifiable legal reasons, which means that there's little incentive to work on the technical details. Whatever NIH tendencies the Linux community may have, they're not the reason for ignoring dtrace.
