Linux kernel to be released under BSD licence
The Linux kernel will soon be released under the BSD licence, kernel creator Linus Benedict Torvalds said today.
He was speaking at a dinner held to honour the top five 2011 Linux Foundation gurus, including the ultimate Linux.com guru, the member of the site who accumulated the most contribution and participation points over the last year.
The Foundation is a non-profit dedicated to accelerating the growth of Linux.
Shortly after he made the announcement, Torvalds was honoured by Foundation head Jim Zemlin for making the most meaningless contribution to Linux.
