30 years of Linux under GPL (Linux30 project launch)

This month marks a pretty significant milestone in the history of the Gnu Public Licence (GPL): 30 years ago Linus Torvalds chose the GPL for the distribution of the recently created Linux kernel — a decision which has had huge consequences for the further development of Free Software.

We will start the night out discussing the linux30.org project and outlining the goals and resources we will be using. We will then discuss the timeline around the licensing of the Linux kernel with the Gnu Public Licence. We will then be having a panel-style discussion with some of Australia's linux veterans and members of the Australian FLOSS community.

This will be a non-technical event and all are welcome. So join us for a discussion about Linux and the GPL at Free Software Australia this month.
