Re: Thought Experiment

Nicely written but:

If someone was allowed to distribute a modified Linux kernel under the Apache licence, for example, they need never pass a single byte of the Source Code to anyone outside their organisation; and yet it would still be considered Open Source

is totally wrong. It would not be Open Source, per definition. And putting the Apache license onto a binary would be like putting "guaranteed gluten-free" onto a concrete block. Absolutely pointless.
