Comment Only GPL'd if you use GPL'd code (Score 1) 571

An addon/plugin/extension/theme will only inherit the GPL if it in any way uses GPL code. If you write some code that uses a published API [document or by observing executing code] and do not view the source code that provides the interface and therefore do not copy ANY GPL'd code how can your code inherit the GPL licence ?

Microsoft Attacks Linux With Retail-Training Talking Points 681

DesiVideoGamer writes "Over at Overclock.net, a user has posted screen-shots from Microsoft's 'ExpertZone' training course entitled 'Linux vs. Windows 7.' This course is available to BestBuy employees and will make them eligible for a $10 copy of Windows 7 upon completion." The screenshots linked show at least some creative interpretations of the state of Linux vs. Windows on a wide range of things, from media playback and video conferencing to ease of updates to (of all things) keeping your PCs "safer." Most of the claims, though, aren't concrete enough to be perfectly refuted. Writes DesiVideoGamer, "I think I now know why, when I enter BestBuy, the employees say the odd lies that they do."
