kristianpaulwhen comes to hardware and commercialization around it you realize whats free and was not.. well.. nothing new02:02
wolfspra1lkristianpaul: funny, eh? :-)02:04
wolfspra1lwhat is 'commercial' hw btw?02:04
wolfspra1lpretty much this shows some confused people on the other side, imho02:04
kristianpaulhardware you can sell/trade no?02:05
wolfspra1lI think what they mean is that you just have the guts to call your stuff 'noncommercial'02:05
wolfspra1lat a time when 'non-profit organizations' are paying multi-million dollar salaries to their executives that shouldn't be too hard...02:05
wolfspra1lI do hope this means such software stays out of debian/fedora etc. though02:07
wolfspra1lif they already spend so much time on these licensing issues, they should keep such stuff out02:07
wolfspra1lin the long run it will be public domain anyway :-)02:07
kristianpauldebian, i just installed some wrappers (so tricky !!)...02:08

lekernelI'm willing to bet that in the end, "non commercial hardware" is mass produced hardware with a low unit cost: raspberry pi, eee pc, etc.11:26
