Own Linux Distro - GPL = ???
a couple of days ago my friend started to build his own distro with LFS, and as he plened it he said to me that he could sell it like Microsoft sells their Windows OS - with no GPL license, no sharing. He said it's because he made the system by himself, and he can decide how to use and sell it. Well I told him yes he can build the system by himself, but still he has to use the Linux Kernel, which is made by Linus... So who is right, can you make your own system and sell it wihout giving the community the right to exchange it free. Can you use software that is under the GPL license, change it a little bit and then sell it like any other without the GPL? :? :?: :?
