GNU, GPL, Open Source "The Software Freedom Law Center's CTO Bradley Kuhn has issued a statement regarding the Novell-Microsoft agreements and how they will impact FOSS developers. They have analyzed in particular Microsoft's Patent Pledge for Non-Compensated Developers and see little value and in fact say it's worse than useless, because it creates an illusion of safety and because it limits severely what that developer is allowed to do with his work."

Anyone else wanna preach to us about how great the deal was, and how much interoperability will be increase, and how anyone who saw this coming is an insane GPL zealot? Thought not. Novell sold us all out, plain and simple.
