OSNews, Generic OSes At the heart of every networking device is an operating system that enables traffic flow. In the case of networking vendor Juniper, that operating system for the past ten years has been JUNOS, a network operating system with its roots in the open source FreeBSD operating system. Juniper has updated JUNOS every 90 days since 1998.

Yes the BSD license ALLOWS this, but that's just proof of how broken and naive the BSD license is.

i agree completely, i know and have worked for companies who have chosen BSD licensed stuff *PURELY* because they won't have to contribute any of their precious IP back, they didn't care about the merits of the code/OS.

mind you, i guess thats better than using GPL stuff and breaking the license....
