Well, not quite about the GPL (except that the GNU President declared 
SUN's CDDL "GPL incompatible" for various reasons and ruled that "a 
module covered by the GPL and a module covered by the CDDL cannot 
legally be linked together. We urge you not to use the CDDL for this 
reason. Also unfortunate in the CDDL is its use of the term 
"intellectual property" <>"), 
but still funny.

Re: Question for the Day

I find it strange and don't think it to be coincidence that Ross Mauri 
and Scott Handy and Dan Frye don't seem to have a problem sounding like 
complete imbeciles and to undercut the credibility of their statements 
taking stabs at Sun Microsystems for precisely open sourcing its Solaris 
OS while at the same time using the opportunity to tell and repeat that 
IBM's AIX OS will stay closed source, including the reasons why. No less.

I mean, the three gentlemen could have touted IBM's many truly open 
source initiatives dwarfing Sun Microsystems' fake OpenSolaris initiative 
without saying a word about closing AIX.

So, what is the real message IBM wants to get across?

BTW The Joke of Today is this one:

Hello, LinuxWorld! - It's so nice to have you back where you belong

Howdy from Moscone North!
Yes, Im here at LinuxWorld in San Francisco. My biggest disappointment 
is how many of the "Linux Vendors" are running Windows for their 
demonstrations. It's not that there's no Linux (or Open Source) 
equivalent of Powerpoint or Word or even Internet Explorer. But some of 
the larger vendors (including Motorola, Oracle and LinuxWorld itself!) 
are running Windows and Microsoft software when Open Sourced software 
clearly exists. Shame, Shame, Shame!

Well, you should definitely tell LinuxWorld folks. Don Marti has a blog 
now for comments about LW. Do tell him of your disappointment.
But keep in mind that it's a fresh start, and it may take a while for 
everything to get in gear.

End of Joke.

So, larger vendors such as Motorola and Oracle are back to running 
Windows in Linuxworld, because Linuxworld - "in new hands I am happy to 
say" - is freshly relaunched.
