GNU, GPL, Open Source "We observe that there exists a broad misconception that the BSD permits the licensing of BSD code and modifications of BSD code under closed source licenses. In this paper we put forward an argument to the effect that the terms of the BSD require BSD code and modifications to BSD code to be licensed under the terms of the BSD license. We look at some possible consequences and observe that this licensing requirement could have serious impacts on the unwary."

"Anyone else noticed a lessening of linux distro review type articles lately???"

Not really. Except that there hasnt been major releases now. Many of the popular distributions work on a bi yearly cycle. When the next stream of releases come around somewhere in April 2007 timeframe, you can start getting reviews again. Maybe you miss them so much.
