comment Can you change code distributed under the MIT license, and re-distribute it under the GPL license?
@Austin: Except MIT is opensource. Opensource and "free software" are completely opposite ideas. One is based on assumption that developers who want to contribute will while contributions from developers who don't want to are worthless anyway, another is based on assumption that MPAA/RIAA makes -- everyone is IP thief and has to be forced to comply. Later leads to major fiascos such as borked GCC Objective-C support, while clang is properly working opensource alternative.

comment How does the GPL static vs. dynamic linking rule apply to interpreted languages?
@thepaul: there already is a legal precedence which states that at least a part of copyrighted work must be included in a work to constitute derivative work. Beliefs of Stallman often have very little foundation in actual real law.

comment How does the GPL static vs. dynamic linking rule apply to interpreted languages?
@thepaul: proprietary software, such as for example Nvidia binary drives is linked to GPL software such as Linux kernel. LGPL condom works in practice.

@thepaul: no it doesn't. FYI, Nvidia binary drivers are not GPL, the kernel is.

comment What is the gain from 64-bit architecture?
@MainMa: There are advantages, but they are anything but obvious. They might be obvious to users of desktop version of Windows, where MS artificially limits 32-bit versions to 4GB.

comment Greenfield vs. brownfield revenue? (attempting to get an idea of measure of effort expended on the two)
dunno, reddit maybe? And if you just want to check wages, I'd just recommend looking at Glassdoor.com
