Please, don't get me wrong. I'm not trying to argue with you.

If you bring on a functional argument - either in favour or against - 
somebody can easily argue with you; it will just add fuel to the fire.
But not when it's a matter of taste. That's what I tried to say. I could 
imagine a few ways to invalidate your arguments.

It's like discussing which religion/operating system/text editor is 
better; we all know where this kind of discussion will head to.

PS: I'm pro [L]GPL, but I don't recommend people using it without first 
understanding (and accepting) the philosophy that comes bundled with it; 
they may regret it later. The same applies for many other licenses.

PS2: of course everybody knows that emacs > vi :)
