I don't know of anyone personally who is happy that Apple disallows GPL code.

And this is what you call a geek bubble. In the grand scheme of things most people don’t know what the GPL is and out of those, only a minority care about it running on their phone.




Most of my friends are not "geeks", and do not exist in the technological space that I do. I'm not speaking from within a bubble.


So you have friends that are not geeks who know about the GPL and care? This is the opposite of the “No True Scotsman”. Anyone who knows about and cares about the GPL is s geek.

No, that would be a regular No True Scotsman.

> So you have friends that are not geeks who know about the GPL and care?

Did I say that? No, I didn't say that. I said I don't know anyone who is happy that Apple disallows GPL. This includes people who have no idea what the GPL is.
