Re: could the GPLv3 kill samba?
Well, you can link gplv2 software with gplv3 software, but they would prefer you didn't. However, the Linux kernel will stay v2, as will a lot of the current software in use in Linux. Getting people to adopt v3 will be difficult methinks.
The FSF will not be able to stop Novell in all practicality, unless they use libraries licensed under v3 which are linked to proprietary software.
Thats what the FSF means by linking - at a library level.
