SubjectRe: Linux, UDI and SCO.

In fact only one phrase added to UDI specifications could solve problem once
and forever. "UDI driver must be released under GNU LGPL terms". But I'm pretty
sure that this phrase WILL NOT be added since IMNSHO all UDI stuff is designed
to take main Linux advantage in drivers problem: open-source per-reviewed
drivers. For now all devices with binary-only drivers are in "unsupported"
state under Linux. IMNSHO UDI is designed to make them "supported"... If phrase
above will be added then both Linux community and commarcial Unix vendors will
be satisfied but a lot of hardware manufacturers will be unhappy -- that's why
it will not be included in UDI specifiation...
