The only problem is that we don't know what the problem is.  We have
been informed that Jeremy has a problem with the current license but not
what the problem is.  His solution is to change the license although it
may not be in the best interest of Lindows and TransGaming.  According
to your inference to Brett, he would be showing them no respect to
*their* business models.


P.S.  I am not implying Jeremy is trying to do anything against either
Lindows or TransGaming; I am just playing devil's advocate.   IOW, no
flames please.  :)
