I've read the GPL quite a number of times and just read it again!! As I understand it, you can charge for supplying the software(like RedHat used to charge for Linux by providing it on CDs) and you can charge for any support or support materials like manuals, handbooks etc. but you can't charge for the code, the software. Am I wrong in understanding GPL? If I'm wrong, then would you please put me right & explain where I am wrong in understand it?(we'll keep the GPL in context of this topic only & not discuss other parts of GPL if not relevant here)

I wasn't accusing Denis of anything, I just said that his wordings on that page are not in compatibility with the GPL. If I was wrong in saying that, I don't know how/where/why I was wrong, you can't possibly know that sometimes unless someone else more enlightened that you can tell you that!! :) 

So ease off and tell me where I'm wrong. :)
