Agreed. And I want to add that we also should think if the price we are
paying with the license change in the long run is worth the EVENTUAL
TEMPORARY boost in productivity. It MAY BE that now we have a temporary
boost because one company wishes this license change and will start to
contribute more after that. But it is not certain if that company will
still be around in some years or if other companies will NOT contribute to
WINE because of the new xGPL license.
After all, if we wanted a productivity boost lets license all WINE code to
Microsoft, I'm sure they would agree to help develop it further in turn :)))
