In a world of servers the only Free software is AGPL software

@forteller Just curious, how is it compared to GPL and others? How is it more free?

@teecee @forteller it protects the freedom of people who interact with software over a network rather than running it by themselves, which no other license does.


it forces you to release code even if you don't distribute your binaries, but only let others use them remotely.

I.e. if you ran a GPL blog engine, you have to give the code to people you give the program (mostly it's Scripts, so nothing to do - they have the code already)

if your blog is LGPL, you'd have to give the source to any visitor

you are totally correct - lgpl is the less strict one, not the more strict one

no idea how I mixed that up
