An interview with Lineo's COO, Matt Harris

Author: JT Smith

An anonymous reader writes: "There's a fascinating interview with the chief operating officer of Lineo at linuxdevices.com -- definitely worth reading. For example: "We have a team with significant technology litigation experience -- inside and outside the company -- which we plan to use if and when the GNU GPL is ever challenged. It is our belief that a successful commercial Linux company such as ours will be in a unique position to defend the license if it comes under serious attack . . " Note: this is no idle threat -- these are the folks who extracted a sizable settlement from Microsoft the last time they faced them in court!"
