Microsoft's new search - Built on open-source

Matthew Flaschen

SFU and the GPL

"Windows Services for Unix has been a product of Microsoft's for years. It is under the GPL and my understanding is that Microsoft has complied with the terms of that license.


Umm.... Noo.....

Not that I am aware of."

Actually, Services for Unix does indeed include GPL software (in addition to BSD). See http://www.linux.com/archive/feature/30073 for details. This is far from the first product to include FOSS code.
