GNU, GPL, Open Source The FSF today released version 3 of the GNU GPL, the popular free software license. "Since we founded the free software movement, over 23 years ago, the free software community has developed thousands of useful programs that respect the user's freedom. The programs are in the GNU/Linux operating system, as well as personal computers, telephones, Internet servers, and more. Most of these programs use the GNU GPL to guarantee every user the freedom to run, study, adapt, improve, and redistribute the program," said Richard Stallman, founder and president of the FSF. This article has some interesting replies from the BSD community (right in the middle).

right, you can't really complain that gnu doesn't let you do everything you want with their own software. make your own compiler and make it bsd if you want!

who knows? it may turn out to be so good that linux would use it instead of gcc. That would be the best way to "get back" at FSF
