    I'm wondering if there's a GPL v. 3.1 with a clause like "this can't be run on a system that relies on closed source, proprietary software for it's basic operation".

    

    I guess the sledgehammer wielding savior of the servants of the computer overlords has, as Orwell made plain, become "more equal" and now rules the animal farm.

Every time you stop a school, you will have to build a jail. What you
gain at one end you lose at the other. It's like feeding a dog on his
own tail. It won't fatten the dog.
- Speech 11/23/1900 Mark Twain
