Read the license. MICROS~1 (aka "Satan") themselves can use GPLed
software. All they have to do is abide by the licensing terms.
The opposite of what you're claiming is terrible is the $MONOPOLY
model. I believe we've seen more than sufficient evidence to suggest
which model has the biggest problems, not the least of which is the
inability of competent programmers to fix problems (or even to suggest
fixes) as soon as they're discovered because competent programmers can
take a look at the code to see what needs fixed under CSS.
I take that back. Competent programmers /can/ suggest some repairs for
flawed CSS code: install OSS and stop being taken from behind.
