It doesn't matter how many releases of Unix there are! The truth of the matter is that AT&T uses GPL code and then bunches it all together.

Lets look at any driver for Sys V.

Does that not just look like the linux driver? Look at some of the functions(viaNetReceive(), viaNetInterrupt()) and lets also look at the register names, don't they look familar?

Doesn't everyone see that as *great* as AT&T is that it is without a doubt porting all this and pawning it off as its own. I for one will not stand for this! The GPL(and other licenses) are meant to protect the developer. I want to see copyrights on the code he uses and I want to see this code. That is only fair. If you are going to use someones code and it is OSS code then be a man and release it.
