"#1: I think that the GNU zealots do not like BSD type licenses as modifiers of BSD licensed code are NOT required to share their source code and changes. Any other problems here are ancillary, I believe."

I think anonymous cowards, GNU zealots, christians, activists, nazi's are individuals who do not share the very same opinion on everything, since <doh> they're individuals. The homepage of GNU,, does talk about the BSDL and their problems with it. However, it doesn't mean anyone over here who ''defens'' GNU agrees with it nor everyone who uses GNU nor everyone who eats cheese every day. Finally, i think your opinion is in no way scientificaly proven.


Perhaps you could post URL's of sources where you've drawed your conclusions from like for point #2?
