From Earlham Cluster Department
GNU is guided by unusually clearly stated fundamental principles. But, as Stallman notes, the LGPL represents a more pragmatic choice. Why be pragmatic with respect to licensing libraries but not with respect to using non-free libraries? Does the mixing of free and non-free software undermine the principles of software freedom? Has the kind of commercialization that has occurred in the "Open Source" industry undermined those principles?
