GNU, GPL, Open Source The first draft of GNU General Public License Version 3 will be unveiled next week at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, Mass., but that milestone is likely to be more of a beginning than an ending. The release of the draft will kick off months of debate over the content and exact wording of the license that will govern much open-source software for the foreseeable future.

Not funny. Btw I am not a humourless/fanboy/zealot b*tch, it really was a lame joke.
Your attitude is more than evident with your username, and the GPL is nothing like what you wrote.
Try harder next time..

Ok, BTW, this license is extremely important because most free software I've seen has the " Licensed under the terms of the GPL License Version 2 or later (at your option)" clause, therefore when GPL 3 comes out, most software will be under that License. However thinking about it I can still choose Version 2, if I am not satisfied by Version 3 ([cough]freedom[/cough]). Anyway I trust Version 3 will be great.

More software will be under it ... or .. the GPL 3.
At the users discretion. You won't get to mix and match.
