    And there is nothing wrong with feeling that way, because both things are protected by the same copyright laws.

    Contrary to popular belief, some developers do actually produce both open source and closed source applications. It's only the zealots (those who don't realise you can sell open source applications) who seem to have a problem with this. Those developers who simply use a software license as a tool, rather than an ideology, never have a problem.

    except you *can* sell GPL'd applications, you just have to provide the source code if requested. You can sell most open sourced licensed software within the confines of the license.
