CVC3 License Changed to BSD

,----[ Quote ]
| I'm delighted to report that this has a happy 
| ending. CVC3's license has just been changed to a 
| straight BSD license - a well-known license that 
| is universally acknowledged as being FLOSS. This 
| means that there are no licensing problems for 
| Linux distributions. Only about a day after he 
| found this out, Jerry James has submitted a CVC3 
| package to Fedora. So, I expect that in a 
| relatively short time we'll see CVC3 available 
| directly in common Linux distribution 
| repositories.


How to make free software as popular as recycling

,----[ Quote ]
| Much of my thinking on this issue stems from an 
| interview I did in 2006 with Peter Brown, the 
| executive director of the Free Software Foundation 
| (FSF). At the time, the FSF was launching its 
| first social campaigns, and Brown said that he 
| wanted to see free software become as much of a 
| mainstream issue as recycling.

| Internetâjust don't count on learning how it identifies even encrypted
| BitTorrent and Skype connections.


ACme: Wireless Energy Management Goes Open Source

| site.
