Microsoft Sometimes, some things are just too good to be true. Earlier this week, Microsoft made a relatively stunning announcement that it would contribute some 20000 lines of code to the Linux kernel, licensed under the GPL. Microsoft isn't particularly fond of either Linux or the GPL, so this was pretty big news. As it turns out, the code drop was brought on by... A GPL violation.

The truly surprising thing to me is that Greg Kroah-Hartman exhibited some discretion for once.

A blogger working to find a solution to a problem, rather than just creating a sensationalist spectacle? Time to revoke his Internet Press credentials!

Actually, I was thinking of Greg Kroah-Hartman, mudslinging kernel developer and community "spokesperson". But in this case I guess he's Greg Krah-Hartman, Novell employee.
