"In fact, the GPL has proven to be the best guarantee
of the integrity of GNU/Linux and its usefulness to industry, a
factor that has influenced Sun's decision to license Java under the
GPL, and to consider releasing Solaris under the GPLv3.
"If this were to happen, it would represent a revolution for the
computer industry. For the first time there would be two GNU
operating systems going head to head in the enterprise, GNU/linux,
licensed under the GPLv2, (as Linux Torvalds threatens), and
GNU/Solaris, licensed under the GPLv3, (as Sun Microsystems
promises). This scenario woudnt't be hurt at all by Sun's recent
purchase of MySQL."
