+ - Signal and Noise in GPLv3->

Submitted by

jammag writes "In this article Signal and Noise in GPLv3, writer Bruce Byfield combines his interviews with Linus Torvalds, Richard Stallman and Peter Brown to dispel the media-driven hype about the supposed "civil war" over the new GPL. "Many journalists prefer to report on a conflict than an agreement," Byfield writes.

So even though he quotes Torvalds as saying, about the FSF, "Get the fuck out of my face — your morality is your morality and keep it to yourself," Byfield notes that the differences between the various parties won't ultimately hurt open source. "Real animosities exist, yet they rarely seem to get in the way of co-operation or shared interests," he concludes."
