This is true, but the fact that open-source developers start spreding this
low-life kind of FUD about the LGPL is really, truely sickening.

Of all the companies releasing _commercial_ software on Linux (more so, I
might add, than on *BSD), none of them had issues linking against the
LGPL. It's a sad day when the *BSD proponents attack the LGPL based on
such disgusting FUD.

I'm sorry for the strong language, but it pains me to see the discussion
derailed in such a fashion.
