Re: [vox] [fwd] The Death of Linuxworld



FSF is Free Software Foundation www.fsf.org

GPL is a license that "protects" the authors
ownership of said items (source code) so
others do not infringe on the copyright filed
or not. It is long winded and silly, I suspect
will not stand up in court scrutiny. Berkley
license is short and to the point.

Thank you all for your inputs!

I am still learning this stuff.

Onward I go!

BTW, what is the difference

between GPL and FSF?

I sorta get GPL but, FSF is a new one for me.

Namaste'
