MEPIS LLC, the popular Ubuntu-based Linux distributor, has finally released its distribution source code under the GPL. Warren Woodford, the Morgantown, WV-based company's CEO, is not one bit pleased with being forced to do so.

[What's interesting to me is that Woodford calls a requirement to include all the sources a 'restriction'. Frankly, I find the "limited agency relationship" comment bizarre. People already can give copies of GPLed software to their friends without being accused of violating the GPL. The only thing needed is the written promise of source code somewhere on the media. - dcparris]
