  ESR: "We Don't Need the GPL Anymore"
Subject:   Won't be able to compete?

Response to: Oh really?

I think the point that ESR is trying to make is that it doesn't matter if some company steals open source software and uses it to create a proprietary product. ESR believes that the advantages that FOSS have over proprietary software are so great that companies that engage in that kind of activity still won't be able to compete against FOSS solutions.
And this is why Microsoft's proprietary Windows operating system has 85% of the desktop market and Linux has about 8%?
