GNU GPL not Y2K-compliant


— 11:12 AM on November 15, 1999

Segfault.org has this news story about a major oversite in the GNU GPL. Apparently, analysts at the FSF verified the issue but downplayed it saying it was not related to the core parts of the GPL. There is no way yet to determine the exact implications of this discovery. From the article:

However, an independent study, funded by Microsoft, claims that this could be the end of almost all free software, as even the Linux kernel has the GNU GPL license file included with it.

On a more positive note, userfriendly.org is making great advances in its informal studies of the correlation of Internet use and subscriber intelligence.
