VMware not complying with GPL?

I've always had the utmost respect for VMware.  A true visionary company.

That's why it really saddens me to hear this multi-billion company does not want to comply with the GPL and is sued by Christoph Hellwig, a German kernel hacker.

If you don't like the license, write your own code.  It's not that your licenses come cheap.   Shame on you, VMware!
