You´re saying that Mozilla is not free enough for your high freedom
standards, because they allow propietary derivatives due to
multi-licensing?. Now I get it.

Ironic that nobody is chastising Mozilla Corp and asking for a fork
due to lack of absolute freedoms from propietary derivatives, yet
Oracle gets all the heat with OpenJDK.

Sorry about the "silly" part, didn´t mean to offend you, as you bring
that adjective over and over again, which I found rather silly, too.
