NetBSD Alistair Crooks, president of the NetBSD Foundation, announced recently that it "has changed its recommended license to be a 2 clause BSD license". This makes NetBSD more easily available to a number of organisations and individuals who may have been put off by the advertising or endorsement clauses.

"That said, look up recent benchmarks, and you will see that most BSDs are doing fine, even on multi-core hardware. Sure, there are some weak spots, but they are all decent and solid UNIX systems."

And I'd like to add that most of the Internet runs on BSD code, and not Linux.
Example: Cisco routers, Junos?, TCP stacks, etc. are all BSD based.
