The only thing I think you failed to mention, George, is that the
GPL requires *any* use of the software, be it "free" or "commercial",
must include the original source code with the distribution, with a
note prominently recognizable saying the distribution is GPL and the
GPL is included in the distribution.

I'm not sure any other license (I don't know for sure, this is just
my understanding) has the stipulation that the source must *always*
be distributed with anything derived from it.
