Does this mean you prefer Sun's SCSL (clearly not even almost-free)?
FWIW, I don't --- the APSL (and the IBM Jikes license, etc.) have
their problems, but those companies seem to be approaching the matter
with a lot more sincerity and good will.
There was problematic stuff in the initial drafts of the NPL and MPL
too, and the Mozilla folks are still fine-tuning those licenses, but I
don't think it would be fair to that crowd to hold those first-draft
problems against them. On the other hand, the explicit public
consultation process that helped straighten out some of those bugs ---
and which the Trolls used as well for their QPL --- might be a good
model for the Apples of the world, precisely to avoid this sort of
fracas when what should have been a late public draft license is
instead slapped onto an actual release.
(And when's the last time you saw Troll Technology cited as a role
model for corporate open source? There's something weird about this,
and yet here I am doing it...).
