Heck, you can forget about having your own office, too, because you'll probably get assigned a modular desk in a big, open space.'

"You all continue to underestimate the dramatic spillover effect this poor developer experience has had and will continue to have on your other products and services. Let me drive this point home.

+ - DirecTV DVR Alleged to Violate GPL 1

Submitted by Linux_Crusader
Linux_Crusader (666) writes "A while back, the new HR20 DVR (Tivo clone) from DirecTV was found to be running uClinux 2.4.29. Unfortunately, hot on the heels of the Monsoon lawsuit, DirecTV has put in place a policy that they will not provide GPL sources under any circumstances. Instead they will just snail-mail you a copy of the GPL license when you request the code. What do we as a community need to do to better educate corporate Linux users?"
