Hi folks,

I read;
Pentaho BI Platform License FAQ

On "Why is Pentaho using the General Public License (GPL) for the Pentaho BI Platform?" it says;
The GPL is well understood by the market and the legal community and has notable precedents such as MySQL, Java and the Linux kernel as GPL-licensed projects
and expect to clarify whehter I can download and run "Pentaho", free of charge, similar to MySQL, JAVA, Linux Kernel, etc. Its users are at liberty to subscribe paid technical support which is NOT compulsory as a condition using Pentahol. Please shed me some light. TIA
