Comment Seeing a new splintering of *nix? (Score 1) 278

With as much traffic that has been devoted to the license on this new blurb, are we starting to see a new kind of splintering?

Everybody seems to think about splintering at the OS or distribution level... but are we seeing the first signs of license splintering? Are we going to start seeing developers move away from open source because of 20 billion different licenses? Will license splintering get down to a point where developers are going to stop dealing with open source, because they will need to get 30 lawyers to wade through the all of the licenseing mess just to release some software?

Just something to throw out, and see what opinions there might be on it.
