License to drill...
Much has been said about this topic throughout the last year. I will not throw any petrol in to the fire and lighten up the discussion, but I will try to straighten thing out as I see them, but as always, a case has more than one angle.
To spice it up I added quotes from my Favorite Christmas Movie.
Ill recommand that listen you this soundtrack from the movie while reading.

The user:
"you can make you fights in the mud or even under water I don't give a shit."

The investor:
"Here is a OpenSource that people are crazy about, it's running on a hardware that's combined with components where not all are licensed."

The dreamer:
"what the hack are you doing to my baby? - raping it on a hardware its not supposed to? Keep you bloody hands from my work, or I sue your ass right in to hell, afterwards - not even your mother will recognize you".!

There was a time:
"The fact that other competitors are now also using the benefits of this Open Source project is seen as an appreciation of our work"
 10 years of Enigma

In fact it's a shame we came in this situation, it has drifted former friends apart, it made enmities in a community that worked so fine.
