How to steal open source software and call it your own...

This blog/story is a very interesting deconstruction of Maui X-Stream, the folks responsible for CherryOS (or at least partly responsible. Or something. It's all very confusing.) In a nutshell, the author presents a whole lot of evidence that yet another one of their product lines contains copious quantities of stolen GPL code.

As much as I dislike the GPL, I really hope they have a field-day in court with Maui X-Stream.
