Is GPL 3 dead on arrival?

Anonymous Reader writes "We've been talking, meeting, and arguing over GPL 3 for nearly two years. Recently, the second draft of the long-awaited rewrite of the popular free-software license arrived. The debate has begun all over again. If we're lucky, we'll see a finished GPL 3 some time in early 2007. It will have address DRM (digital rights management), patent concerns, clarify the existing language and, who knows, bring forth a new generation of software freedom never seen before. Or, it could sit there like a rock and not matter a whit. Guess which one I'm betting on?"
