who are you referring to with 'they' ?

*** They *** should consider licenses like ?

if *** They *** have any understanding ?

Who is this 'they' ?  Is it the users of Red Hat software? Fedora users?
People that believe that GPL license is a good thing?

I can't believe you can write this stuff and expect people to track your
what you are talking about. 

The import of your vague articles is that you are suggesting that we all
just too stupid to embrace your enlightened view except that you are
hiding the bluntness of your opinions with indefinite language.

We all can agree that it's probably that the GPL license does cause some
vendors not to produce software or hardware for the users of Red Hat
software or Fedora software or GNU Linux (assuming that this is the
***they*** to which you are referring). So what? Use BSD if you like
that license better. Windows licensing apparently attracts a virtually
unlimited number of vendors...use that.
