Yes, Cisco/Linksys has had problems with GPL before. From what we heard from the tech industry when that scandal hit (2003-ish), Linksys was borrowing freely from GPL and but not attributing it, a definite no-no. When Cisco purchased Linksys in 2003, they had a source code review and discovered the "oversight". After the obligatory "WTF do we do" meetings, Cisco decided to release the firmware into the open source community. This is why Linux hackers latched on and upgraded their router into a $600 beast.

Today, we’re using the Internet for more things than we ever really expected to use it for. When it first became popularized, the idea of sending simple text messages back and forth to one another was all the rage, but beyond that, it would have been very difficult to accurately predict where the Internet would lead us right up to the current day.
With the advancement in digital video technology (with digital cameras that can create video, as well as video cameras that record direct to dvd), video editing is fast becoming a core function of the desktop. This is an overview
of the state of consumer video editing software on linux.

Experts, users and authors agree: When Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 launches in February, it will succeed or fail on the merits of Xen. Forget the FUD, said Andy Hudson, a RHEL5 beta tester and author of Fedora Core 6 Unleashed living in the U.K. Forget the deep support discounts offered by Oracle for its Unbreakable Linux, and definitely forget about the claims coming from the Microsoft-Novell camp about interoperability. They're all moot points.
Microsoft has defended the digital rights management systems integrated into its new Vista operating system.
(A partial response to Peter Gutmanns' article -Azerthoth)
The open source movement and libraries have a lot in common, not the least of which is the belief in free and open access to ideas and information. Yet, until recently, libraries have been slow to switch to open source software. Libraries have highly specialized software needs because the library community has developed its own complex standards and protocols to facilitate things like interlibrary loan, meta data sharing, and federated searching. Until recently, lack of commercial support made implementing open source unfeasible for libraries without an IT staff. Also, open source alternatives weren't perceived as scalable or feature-rich enough to handle the complex needs of most libraries. Now, commercial support has facilitated new levels of collaboration between libraries through sponsored development.
