Linux Linus posted on the Linux Kernel Mailing List today and said that the kernel will not be moving to GPLv3. "The Linux kernel is under the GPL version 2. Not anything else. Some individual files are licenceable under v3, but not the kernel in general. And quite frankly, I don't see that changing."

Some of these developers spend too much time thinking about licenses and not enough about developing. All this hemming and hawing over difference in the licenses when they should be focused on improving the kernel.
