GNU, GPL, Open Source "This guest whitepaper explains how a hypervisor can be used to leverage GPL software while isolating it from proprietary code, in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of the GPL. It was written by a TRANGO Virtual Processors product manager, and uses that company's hypervisor as an example."

Problem for FSF is, GPLv2 still works great for the needs of the majority of software houses...There simply isn't any practical reason to pick GPLv3 over GPLv2.

Most people who keeps their code under GPLv2 doesn't really care who uses their code as long as they're given back the "tit for tat"
