Re: [PLUG] Exactly what is RedHat doing?

More from a CentOS developer (but not an official CentOS statement):

In summary: mildly annoying but not a GPL issue, no harm, no foul, nothing to see here, move along... (Except for the CentOS "Plus" kernel which may be affected in the ways we already noted.)

In addition, he notes something I was wondering about. *When* did Red Hat do this? The blog author Johnny Hughes says 4 months ago, which corresponds to the release of RHEL6, which makes sense. Except why all the big to-do now? If it took everyone 4 months to notice it's probably not really that big a deal...

"Microsoft Tax" = the additional hardware & yearly fees for the add-on
software required to protect Windows from its own poorly designed and
implemented self, while the overhead incidentally flattens Moore's Law.
