If you try to convince me that apples == oranges than it's you who don't
understand computing machinery.

Sure hardware has software logic (usually immutable), but hardware is a
physical device with builtin logic. Just that. No software is derivable
from hardware since they're of two completely different classes.

It's like saying a book is a derivate work of a common stone.

Yes. Mind, the realm of ideas, where the subject can be shared without
any loss of the emitter. If you transmit an idea you don't loose it. You
still have it, and the receivers now have it _too_ (neutral-win)

If you give your video card to someone else, you lost your video card

It's a very clear distinction, at least to me. Do you have a problem
with that? In mind the most common transactions are neutral-win. You
didn't loose an idea (neutral) I won by learning something.
