It can and will make an enormous difference to many of us - otherwise we end up rewriting each other's software. It is a courageous decision - as was IBM's - and should be applauded. I also think it will be a fruitful decision. I have been through the same thoughts when people have asked whether they could distribute JUMBO in their book/CDROM or whatever. I now have no problem with this, and am looking at the GPL for this purpose [comments would be much appreciated.] I think the quid-pro-quo would be to ask people to register their use with you and you may well benefit from this.
