OSS Sound System to be Released under GPL
« on: June 20, 2007, 09:42:17 am »

According to an article at desktoplinux.com, the developers of the OSS Sound System are going to be releasing it under the GPL, among other open source licenses. The article can be found here: http://www.desktoplinux.com/news/NS9613626182.html

Also see the following pages at the OSS development site:

FWIW,
John

ALSA probably beats the pants of OSS by now, has a much larger driver database and most newer apps rely on ALSA anyway.

Meh... a little late to be doing this I guess...

Looks like another case of "what can we do with this...?"

They probably got tired of having to maintain the code.
