Just remember that the article in question, like the FSF itself, is 
rather one-sided. When RMS says "Free Software" he means free for users. 
Developers have few freedoms and many requirements under the FSF's 
definition of freedom. It's a big reason why Apache-style licensing has 
been outpacing GPL licensing.
