    Default Open Sound System Goes Open-Source

    Phoronix News: Open Sound System Goes Open-Source

    Announced on the OpenSolaris forums by 4Front Technologies is that they will be open-sourcing the Open Sound System (OSS) on June 14th. 4Front's Open Sound will be licensed under the CDDL for Solaris and GPLv2 for Linux, BSD, and other platforms. This is great news and you can share your thoughts on it in the Phoronix Foruns. Additional information will come a week from today, June 14, when the announcement is officially made...

    I wonder how crippled it is going to be after the proprietary code is removed.

    That'd be my take. It's only still relevant to the Linux space because it supports some chipsets that ALSA does not- it's certainly not relevant to the Linux kernel as they discarded it when the OSS primary developer took it at least partially proprietary.
