I don't know if you're aware of this, but this kind is *useless*
discussion has been going on on the mailing lists for *years*. Check
groups.google.com and you'll see that everything you might want to add
about GPL vs BSD has already been said a hundred times. John Dyson
posted a lot about it, then Brett Glass did for a while, and now you.
If the time wasted on these rants had gone into writing software we'd
have a 100% BSDL system today. My very humble suggestion is that you
please take this somewhere else. I've never seen a GPL advocate 'see the
light' and start licensing his software under the BSD license after
having a conversation with a BSD 'zealot', or vice versa.
