Submission + - OSS becomes OSS - Too Late? (4front-tech.com)

An anonymous reader writes: 4Front Technologies [http://www.opensound.com/] will finally license [http://www.4front-tech.com/hannublog/] their Open Sound System (the commercial version of the Linux kernel's old OSS audio drivers) under the GPL and CDDL. Maybe a little too late as ALSA has taken its place now. Developers may eventually change that again as OSS's API is much nicer to program for. The system setup is easier, too. But it will be a hard fight.

Official announcement tomorrow.

New systems generate new problems.
