GNU, GPL, Open Source Linus Torvalds, father of the Linux kernel, has fleshed out his unhappiness with GPLv3 in three recent posts on the Linux Kernel Mailing List. Torvalds previously stated that the kernel will remain under the licensing terms of GPLv2. Yesterday, Torvalds offered his opinion as to where the battle over DRM should take place.

I meant the lgpl libc, however, libgcc is actually a library it's in my /lib ;-)

You got me though, I was being too general, I said GPL when I meant LGPL. We were talking about libraries after all and I didn't proof read...

Now that's interesting. I wasn't aware of its existence... You do learn everyday.

Drifting a bit off the topic, but I suppose it's only useful for GCC itself? There is a significant number of proprietary software compiled by GCC and I never heard somebody asking for that shared library. It's quite important since it would be forbidden; GCC is under the standard GPL.

Ah! Talking of the GPL. Do they plan to make a revision to the LGPL?
