    Oh, I wouldn’t worry about that. It’s just a small group of users making panicked a broadly fallacious comments, about non-existent copyright infringements and the equally non-existent danger of source closure of existing products, etc.

    Frankly, desktop Linux does have to start gaining revenue from somewhere, and a project that is broadly free (beer), with a free (speech) client is hardly that offensive.
