nihonlinux.jp was owned by nihonsoft.jp's owner, and now other person
owns nihonlinux.jp. Come on wayback machine, take me to the world in 2002...
Okay, here is http://web.archive.org/web/20021122152220/http://nihonlinux.jp/
Souhei Abe, is the person who did violated Mandrake's license and tried
to apply GGPL (it's failure as license, broken) and has been the owner
of that company, not someone else.
see http://lists.sourceforge.jp/pipermail/nihonlinux-process/ , and
you can get his name in that archives.
He has not do any explanations about violation, just stop development and
distribute (and delete its related links and documents).
I think it's same as we'll encourage SCO as a Linux consultant ;)
