Freetards turn on Google

Well it has been a long time coming but the freetards are finally starting to wake up to the fact that Google is not really part of their club. Or, rather, that Google belongs to their club when it suits them but not always. Check out this story on where freetards complain because Google is releasing Android code under an Apache license instead of the beloved (and truly fucked up) GPL. I just talked to Eric about this and he says he wonders why it doesn’t occur to the freetards that the problem isn’t Google — it’s them. “If they weren’t such assholes we might actually want to work with them,” he says. “You think I want my $200 billion market cap resting in the hands of Richard M. Stallman? Um, let me get back to you on that.”

As always the freetards are fantastic double-speakers. Check out the following beautiful quote from a freetard in the Wired story: “They owe us nothing,” Mosher says of smartphone manufacturers using OpenMoko. “Our only request is this: They owe other people the same rights we gave them. We give you the code for free. If you change it or improve it, you must give your work back to the common good.”

In other words, you owe us nothing. Except, um, you owe us all of your code. Hillary Clinton couldn’t do better than that one. (Photo: Dian Phossey, Linux-Watch.)
