Submission + - kqemu released under the GPLv2

Michael Opdenacker writes: "Fabrice Bellard, the author of ffmeg/libavcodec and the qemu emulator, has released the 1.3.0pre10 version of the kqemu accelerator kernel module. This kernel module makes it possible to run the i386 and x86_64 system emulator at close-to-native speeds when running qemu on the same processor architecture. According to the NEWS page, it is now licensed by the GPLv2!

kqemu was first released under a proprietary license, but Fabrice promised it would make it free when a company funds his work. Though no company name was disclosed, Fabrice kept his promise. That's an event many people have been waiting for for a long time. Now, it is easy to run another operating system from Linux, with very good performance and only using Free Software! Time to sell WMware shares?"
