  1. Good point there. ^.^ The GPL isn't limiting WordPress … WordPress was made possible by the GPL! I daresay its free-ness is part of what made it so popular, too, and receive so many quick updates.

    1. You’re correct in that the GPL isn’t limiting WordPress—at least, I don’t think so. Daniel’s argument is that more developers might be attracted to the project if it were released under a more “liberal” open source license, and he might be right, but WordPress (and Daniel points this out in his own argument) has been hugely successful in part due to the GPL.
