No it's not.

The XFree86 consortium has always been not very fond of Free Software.
This was a move against Free Software, and as it backfired so much, they
took half a step backwards.

You know that a cat showered in water that is too hot is afraid of cold
water (this is a direct translation from a popular saying).

They have done it in the past, they did it again, they will do further n
the future.

I welcome the change.
