What is the best copy-left license for a library if you want to allow linking?

Hi. I have a library I've been working on for a while in my spare time that I want to distribute as open source.

I want people to be able to freely use my library in commercial products without having to open source the product itself or provide object files to relink to my library (which the LGPL requires). Other than that issue, I like the GPL.

What license should I use for this?
