I tried to explain why GPL-licensed components are removed from the FreeBSD base system. Interestingly, the inspiration came from the FreeBSD Quarterly Development Report and a simple question I asked myself as I studied it. The story turned out to be long enough because I was approaching the answer to my question gradually. Within my modest means, I did my best to disclose the very topics that, in my opinion, help to better understand the answer to it. I urge you to study the quarterly reports of free software nonprofits, use free software and participate in its development and ask yourself simple questions.
