| In , what could turn out to be a most interesting turn of events, Sun has
| decided to release OpenSolaris under the GPLv3.

Nothing to confirm this the scale of this yet, but based on what Linus has
said, this could/would push Linux to GPLv3 as well.

| First of all, Sun has been engaged directly in the GPL v3 process
| since it started. My colleagues and I attended the launch conference

| conversation with my friend and collaborator Danese Cooper of Intel.
