At least someone there is. See
for the relevant quote.
The license for beta 2 of
Microsoft's Mobile Internet Toolkit (beta 2) specifically
lists PERL (sic) among the pieces of open source software
that you are not allowed to use to assist in development,
or distribute with any applications which you use their
toolkit to develop.
Considering that Microsoft is a significant source of
funding for ActiveState, this
very much seems to be a case of the left hand not knowing
what the right hand is doing. But it is also possible
that this is a reaction to the fact that Microsoft
executives were badmouthing open source (particularly
the GPL) while Microsoft's site continued to distribute
GPLed software. Perhaps they feel the need to prove that
they really are afraid of open source, just like they
want their customers to be..?
BTW the entire license agreement
(Search for PERL.)
UPDATE (Jun 29)
The license agreement was available. After appearing on
LinuxToday, here, slashdot, and kuro5hin, they moved links
and the EULA is no longer at the same location. That looks
suspiciously like an attempt at damage control, and I
sincerely hope that said damage control extends as far as
removing or significantly modifying the objectional terms,
rather than just not making the EULA available except to
people who are installing the product.
