GNU, GPL, Open Source Leading Linux developers are divided on whether the open source operating system should use the next version of the GNU General Public License. The first public discussion draft of GPL 3 was released last week. Over the weekend the Linux kernel mailing list started discussing whether this version could be used, as this may require a consensus among kernel developers.

It might even cause a split. A 2.0 kernel, and a 3.0 kernel. That would mean the end of Linux's (slow) march into normal people's homes.

How so. How hard is it to go and edit text to read 3.0?

Many people have contributed code to the Linux kernel, and each individual copyright holder determines which license his code will use.
