So Linus, the Gnu GCC and maybe Clang communities should be happy then.


The ISO C++ committee can still add the framework I suggested after I've loosened the restrictions of the patent.


Commercial usages or transitions to other languages can be negotiated.

Again if people worry about my "values", I can say all my efforts are directed on research and development in:

- astrophysics (already in touch with the ISS + muons experiment will prove the standard model wrong within a year);

- artificial intelligence (deep learning, GPU programming, artificial super intelligence, ...).

Where both are inevitable anyways.
