Samba Adopts GPLv3 for Future Releases

More good news – The Samba project have adopted GPLv3 as the license for future releases of Samba. This move strengthens the position of the project and will protect the freedoms it offers for many years to come.
I’m never sure how much Samba I use – I don’t talk to Windows boxes, but then I do occasionally talk to odd printers, and Macintoshes and Samba probably ‘just works’ under there, somewhere. I met Jeremy Allison at LinuxWorld London last year and it was great to meet someone so passionate about free software and freedom, over and above ‘open source’
