Red Hat "We see the desktop as only a piece of the entire operating system product; integration must extend beyond the desktop. We also believe that users care most about functionality and integration rather than the underlying technology. For these reasons, we have created a single desktop look and feel for Red Hat Linux rather than maintaining two unrelated configurations." Very good stuff over there from Owen Taylor, the Red Hat Desktop Team member.

ummm...first of all i know the BSD license very well...b/c that's all i have ever and would ever release software under

don't believe me...

go here

i suggest you read the BSD license again you moron
if someone derives any code from BSD licensed software...they gotta give credit to the original author...yeah they can take your code and make money with it...but how the hell is that different than GPL? ever heard of oh i dunno RED HAT? yeah they make some money off of GPLed software...which was my original source license doesn't matter in that regard...the reason to pick a certain license over another tends to be about philosophy...personally i find the GPL too restrictive to work with...BSD is the most compatible license out there short of Public Domain (which leaves you open to potential legal issues since with public domain you do not release yourself from implied warranties)...and yeah you can take my code and make a closed source proprietary product with it...but you can just as easily incorporate it into a GPL codebase or whatever else you might want to do with it...

another thing that pisses me off about you is that you don't even have the balls to post with a handle

argggggggggggggggggghhhh anonymous BSD trolling cowards
