I released OpenPoker under a dual GPL/commercial license today. The project is not bringing in much money and poker engines are a commodity item. I still think that Erlang is the best language for a truly scalable poker server and will be maintaining OpenPoker going forward.
I not sure that it’s his intention, but Joel is doing more to advance the case for Erlang as a language for scalable net-enabled applications than anybody I know. Keep it up, Joel!
