Novell and Ximian "The Free Software Foundation has published a third draft of the GPL3 license. The FSF had indicated leading up to this draft that it would be addressing some concerns it had with the Novell-Microsoft agreements in the draft. Here's Novell's position on the new draft."

First let me say that I've been a Novell supporter for several years. When they bought Suse Linux I was both excited and scared about what would happen. So far I believe Novell has done a great job with Linux, but still comes up short in many areas.

With that said, I'm of the mind that people are still making a big deal out of all of this. You don't change the world by demanding equality. You do it by showing people a better way.

My question is simple. Is the GPL v3 trying to show people a better way or is it trying to demand equality?
