+ - Robert Love Joins Google

No Love for Novell? writes: "Although it doesn't resolve all the speculation about whether Robert Love left Novell due to the Microsoft deal, we now know where he's going.

+ - ZFS under GPLv2 already exists

mrcgran writes: "ZFS (the zettabyte filesystem) has been grabbing lots of attention lately, not only because of its technical merits, but also because of conflicts between it and Linux kernel's licensing and architecture. However, an interesting account on how ZFS has already been released under GPLv2 by making its way into GRUB last week has failed to make headlines in slashdot. What incentives can this provide to the official support of ZFS in the Linux kernel?"
