Although tempting, it's wrong to assume that any person or entity which
makes money is against everything good and wholesome in the world.  In
fact, it behooves every technology company with plans to be doing business
20 years from now to maximize the computers skills of today's school-aged

Further, Be has shown itself to be fairly progressive in its approaches to
software, suggesting that they will not try to close-source Python.

Let's not jump to any conclusions.
