Lindows.com Announces Mozilla-Based Nvu Web Publishing Software

Wednesday October 29th, 2003

Michael Robertson, CEO of Lindows.com, has announced that his company is starting a project to build an easy-to-use Web publishing product for Linux. The new application, called Nvu (pronounced 'N-view'), will be based on Mozilla Composer and released under the Mozilla Public License. Lindows.com has contracted Daniel Glazman of Disruptive Innovations to be the lead developer, though the company hopes to attract other contributors. Version 1.0 of Nvu is expected in the first quarter of 2004. See the Nvu FAQ for more information.

Can someone who understands this perfectly answer some questions about lindows and GPL ? (No speculation please)

- Is Lindows OS licensed under GPL ? - Can someone who purchased lindows OS CD, distribute it freely ? - Can someone who got lindows OS source under GPL, modify it trivially and redistribute it? - Can there be portions of lindows OS not covered by GPL ?
