Parent article: Novell's IRC session on the Microsoft deal
I only had the heart to read 2/3 of the transcript but it doesn't appear to say anything new. It's just more of:
"We are not violating the letter of the GPLv2."
"We truly have no idea what Microsoft is paying for, or why."
"We don't know why Microsoft is saying these things and we're trying to get them to stop."
"We got Microsoft to admit that Linux is great! That's worth something isn't it?"
Jon asked the key question. Search on "corbet" and watch Novell dodge it completely.
It's really, REALLY depressing for me to see this corporatespeak coming directly from Nat Friedman. I used to have a huge amount of respect for the guy. Nat, what has happened to you? I can only hope that Novell is paying you a huge amount of money for this.
Sigh. Not a good way to start a Monday.
