Good news? I don't think so

Having followed Genesi for a while, I'd say this is just a really desperate move to try to get people interested in their stuff.

They are hoping that Linux and GPL fanboys will flock to their platform and let them do all the work in getting it properly finished, and giving it recognition.

If you fall for this now, don't complain later on when you discover that you've been fooled. You've been warned.
