Mosix people are
now looking into the Linux GPL issue. Since it was Linus
and the other core kernel developers who gave the binary module
dispensation (binary modules may be inserted into the kernel
as long as they do not require kernel modifications of their
own) it seems odd they are talking to the FSF about this. But
at least this is a move in the right direction.
It appears that PL/I (and its dialects) is, or will be, the most widely
used higher level language for systems programming.
