The GNU Free Documentation License

  • Groups: GNU; Story Type: News Story
"Free software needs free documentation." With this preamble, the Free Software Foundation released the GNU Free Documentation License (FDL) in March 2000. Even with a revision in November 2002, the license has had mixed reviews in the free and open source communities, especially when compared to the widespread enthusiasm for the GNU General Public License (GPL). Some accept the FDL with a few reservations, while others reject it as not being free enough. Both attitudes seem likely to persist at least until the license's next revision.

Foolproofing Open Source

  • BusinessWeek; By Stuart Cohen (Posted by tadelste on Aug 9, 2005 8:54 AM EDT)

STRONG FOOTING. Any discussion of open-source software and the law begins with software licenses. The GNU General Public License (GPL) is the world's most widely used open-source software license. It continues to be a very good license for different kinds of software. The competitors to Linux and open source always stress the risk that users and companies face if they use this software to run their business. You may be surprised to learn that the GPL has never been successfully challenged in court since it was introduced in 1991. That's a very good thing to know if your business runs Linux.

Cygwin brings Unix to Windows

It's a common story: You leave the comfortable confines of the university computer lab, where you've become accustomed to your Unix/Linux cocoon over the past four years. You're been thrust into the cold, hard reality of your first real job, where you are left to fend for yourself in the unfamiliar, and subjectively unfriendly, environment of Windows. Your handy shell scripts no longer do your bidding, all the useful tools to which you've become accustomed are nowhere to be found, and just where the heck do they hide /usr/bin on these machines, anyway?

That's a task for tovid, a free suite of open source tools to make that trip from the hard drive in one room to a DVD player in another completely painless.
