He may have strong emotions against GNU licenses, yet I consider him
more the opposite of Stallman. While Glass is strongly against GNU
licenses, Stallman is strongly against closed-source.
I think a good test of a license is how little lawyer-speak is in it:
(WINE's license - texinfo at top) (GLIBC's LGPL)
wc -l 19 482
BSD wins. :) Anyone have a Microsoft EULA, as a file, handy?
