Why are you so fixated on what a particular company does?

If you don't like GPL, there are alternative licenses, ranging
from the most restrictive to most laissez-faire. Redmond
and others have been known to use code published BSD-style 
license, some of them under the EEE (embrace, extend and 
extinguish) model. Maybe GPL and RMS aren't all bad, aren't they?
