FUSE for macOS: Why a popular open source library became closed source and commercially licensed

This sounds like an excuse for "control"

GPL / commercial dual licenses have been used for years for exactly this reason. For example:

https://github.com/cesanta/mongoose/blob/master/LICENSE

Quite successful, loads of commercial companies use *and pay* for it.

But I suppose a scummy proprietary operating system deserves a scummy proprietary Filesystem in User-Space implementation.
