| San Francisco, CA (December 02, 2009) Artifex 
| Software Inc. today announced that it has 
| filed a lawsuit in the United States District 
| Court for the Northern District of California 
| against Palm, Inc., based on Palmâs 
| unauthorized copying and distribution of one

Open Source In A Parallel Universe

,----[ Quote ]
| More than anything else I have read 
| recently, the phrase "parallel universes" 
| sums up so much of what open source's 
| fiercest advocates seem to be aiming for. 
| The GPL makes it all too easy not just for 
| software to exist in dual incarnations, but 
| for the entirety of IT to follow suit -- 
| the software, the hardware, the licensing, 
| the whole thing.



Palm Pre GSM source code now available

,----[ Quote ]
| According to Harald Welte, the source code for the
| Palm Pre GSM model, currently being sold in Europe is
| now available from the opensource.palm.com site.
| Earlier this week, Welte pointed out that the source
| code for the new model of the Palm Pre was not
| available to the public, as it should be to comply
| with the terms of the GPL. An email to Welte from Palm
| has now confirmed the availability of the code for
| WebOS 1.1.2 and 1.1.3.


Palm Pre GSM model source code available

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
