Daniel's First GPL

Today, Daniel Garcia GPL'd his code. Technically, it was always GPL'd because he had used GPL'd code to write it and modified it for the modules he wrote. He was not aware that the derivative work was to be GPL'd as well. Once he realized what had happened, he exclaimed how happy he was.

Daniel: i'm so happy

Daniel: my code is GPL'd

Kaoru: Is this your first one?

Daniel: Well, technically, no ;). It's always been GPL'd

Kaoru: So tell me how you feel about this first GPL thing

Daniel: It's like Pam over at Groklaw said, "I feel like I'm home"

Daniel: "before it felt like I was a guest"

Daniel: "a well treated guest, but a guest nonetheless"

Daniel: now I feel "freer"

Daniel: it's hard to explain

Daniel: it's almost as if I had nasal congestion and all of a suddenly I could breath

Daniel: are there any good links to advantages and disadvantages of the GPL that I could show my friend?

Kaoru: Well, SURE!
