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.

No debate of Linux kernel developers has started. Someone brought the subject up; another said it's too early, and then a troll who is not a kernel developer started flaming the GPL.

Yup... that's pretty much how it started in this thread.

And thanks for being a part of your summary (guy #2).

Not to mention that the person who started the thread, Jeff 'I-want-to-buy-a-non-gpl-licensed-copy-of-the-kernel-for -$50k' Merkey, is a known loon.
