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."

Hello!? Are you daft? There cannot be a v3 fork. You would still have to get every damn programmer who ever committed code to the kernel to agree to that. Good luck.
