Microsoft Drops GPLv3 Like a Hot Rock

Comments Filter:
  • At this point in time, in order to avoid any doubt or legal debate on this issue, Microsoft has decided that the Novell support certificates that we distribute to customers will not entitle the recipient to receive from Novell, or any other party, any subscription for support and updates relating to any code licensed under GPLv3.
    So if the FSF moves gcc and other stuff to GPL 3 and Novell gets that, then it will NOT be sold via microsoft?

We are experiencing system trouble -- do not adjust your terminal.
