The Linux kernel is released under the GPLv2 license, not the "GPL version 2, or any later version", but explicitly GPL version 2. It means that the Linux kernel source won't be available under the GPLv3 unless the kernel developers make an explicit change to allow it. And, it appears the kernel developers aren't planning to make that change. So what's the likely outcome?
I just finished taking my first course over at Oreilly School and I must say that I am pleased with the course. The first course that I took was a “brush up” course in Linux administration (Linux/Unix 1: The Unix file system).
Practical, hands-on exercises teach you how to record automated performance tests, use data-driven techniques to ensure randomization, play-back tests, and evaluate real-time performance reports.

If you disagree with what we are doing, you don't have to participate in it. You have every right to be vocal about your attitude and opinion on projects such as this.
