comment How much business logic should the database implement?
@RobertHarvey, But the part of the application logic that is in .NET is still locked in to .NET. Same goes for PHP and Java.

comment What does the Apache licensing mean by “Permitted: Commercial Use”
Well at least GPL allows us to obfuscate edits to make it harder for people to reverse engineer and get the "code".

comment What does the Apache licensing mean by “Permitted: Commercial Use”
Would it be against the law to take the GPL-licensed library and simply sell it unedited? Or perhaps with just a few minimal touch-up changes?

So do you mean that projects using a GPL-licensed library, cannot be used for commercial purposes and the entire code must be made open?

comment why there is no power operator in java / c ++?
@DavidThornley, The "there was no good candidate for an operator" seems like an excuse. It's totally fine to use something like pow or power or $pow or \pow which is clear and straightforward. What's with the fetish for pure non-letter symbols?
