gpl  software patent issues ( GPL v3 ). Maybe you'd feel safer using Microsoft's own. I can't help but think that if the second theory proves true, in order to actually participate as a valid option within the FOSS community (even if the intention was more involved, like subverting it), Microsoft will have to embrace and practice the business changes such participation entails.

And even more recently, in February-March of this year we moved to Affero General Public License ( AGPL ), which stopped people from hosting our software in certain ways, so it really protected the people who wanted to use our application and develop on it in a proper way.

The point, to restate it, is to encourage development of the source by enjoining contributions via the right license; and to also allow for the possibility of commercialization. But if you want to commercialize or make a profit on the work done by the community, then you should pay for that, not exploit the community.
