A third way for software development

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet has an item penned by Lineo CEO Bryan Sparks, addressing the Microsoft Mundie speech and the GPL: "GPL is not
some oddity of the
software world. In fact, it
embodies the best of both
proprietary software and
open-source software by
allowing companies to
keep their own work while
using the incredibly stable
and robust features of an
open-source operating
system such as Linux. To
further clarify inaccurate
statements, the GPL never
requires a company to
give away source code to
its custom application
programs."
