Development begins on Open Source alternative to universe

Author: JT Smith

Segfault: ""God holds a monopoly on the Universe," says one of the developers working on FreeVerse, "and He's
withholding information about His system which could be used by its users to learn more about it." 'God' here does
not mean Linus. It does not mean RMS. It means God. The Supreme Being. Creator Of All Things.

One group of people angry with God's non-disclosure policy on His source code are physicists. They argue that it
would be much easier to write a Grand Unified Theory if they could only get a peek at the source code. FreeVerse
means to change that. "We're using no proprietary code," says another FreeVerse developer, "it's all done from
scratch."" Ha.
