Submission + - Guardian on the Open Source schism ..

rs232 writes: ""The schism in the free/open source world has become more interesting with Stallman's release of version three of the GPL. This contains new features to prevent what's called "Tivoisation", after TiVo's use of GPL software (Linux) in a non-free system. It also aims to stop the patent licensing scheme Microsoft is using to do deals with Linux distributors such as Novell .. Either way, if GPL v3 exacerbates the split in the free/open source world, it's a good time for Microsoft to get cosy with the OSI side while trying to avoid Stallman's FSF side'
