LGPL looked like the obvious choice for PCBO when the following problem cropped up - GPL Hijacking. LGPL doesn’t spread to other parts of an application and it does allow being linked with closed-source programs. LGPL is “compatible” with GPL in the sense that you can, at your option, convert a LGPLed program to a GPL one any time you want. Such a change is irreversible. For a small project, this is a risk.

I was trying to decide which license to use for my PCBO. So I had to do a bit of research on the usable licenses. These two sites were very helpful - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Open-source_license http://www.opensource.org/licenses/ Basically GPL is like a virus. All derived and any larger work of which a GPL code is part of, must be open sourced and licensed under GPL. But this imposes a lot of restriction on libraries like glibc which are used in almost every project.

The IIT B project here at IIT B turned out to be more work than play |=( . Of course, I learnt loads of things - java tomcat server installation, java applet, java servlet, got to know about online website development, made full use of del.icio.us and a lot more… I found out IITs are not that much different from NITs.. Except the mess I dont find much difference in the work environment.

Today we combined the front end design of the oscilloscope with the plotting program. We also integrated the slider and the volt/div controls. We also took 10^6 readings of an input waveform with varying frequency and voltages. Our report is expected to be only around 12 pages, so that made our job a lot easier.
