GNU, GPL, Open Source "A new analysis of licensing data shows that not only is use of the GPL and other copyleft licenses continuing to decline, but the rate of disuse is actually accelerating." This shouldn't be surprising. The GPL is complex, and I honestly don't blame both individuals and companies opting for simpler, more straightforward licenses like BSD or MIT-like licenses.

Oh gee how much more accurate you were. If the editors now are from BeNews, you actually have the old BeOS mindset here. And making a point with BSD Beos not being Haiku, is just more retardation. Infact you don`t have to look back much, here, to see that recently "Haiku was going to change the world".

As an ossite, I could mention that Haiku once had a point over Linux, in it`s design, in that it was not dependent on unix structures, so it could optimize the signal-path somewhat. In practise though, Haiku is snailing along, and is not in anyway better than Linux, has a retarded licence, and only having one windowmanager does not make it more tightly intergrated.

What baffles me is that so many idiots are on an OPERATING SYSTEM site. Who knew it could gather such an ignorant following. Don`t you have some football to play or something?
