At first I couldn't believe what I read on Slashdot, but here it is: http://blogs.computerworlduk.com/sim...ware/index.htm
I guess they panicked with Oracle suing everything that moves.
Damn, I wasn't even aware of this.
How can you explain the FSF's holy jihad against KDE in light of this?
The holy license war when Qt was not GPL'ed, and all that. Don't tell me you don't remember. FSF saw the danger that the whole Linux desktop would be dependent on a piece of non-free software (Qt), and tried to kill KDE as a result. The issue was resolved a couple of years later, and hasn't been an issue since then, other than the fact that GNOME was started.
Now we find out that the FSF was releasing non-free software as the very basis of every program running on Linux. For decades? :O
For the varying levels of non-free, this was really close to the doesn't-matter edge. As a part of glibc it's already in a bigger work.
