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.

this is true...with a BSD license your code can be used for anything and that's why i like it...the only real obligations that a user of code has is to display your copyright somewhere like in an about box or a splash screen

for this reason, BSD and similar licenses are the most Open...and thus it is still in the spirit of the open source community because there are essentially no restrictions on the source code...you can do whatever you want with it

it is not in the spirit of Free Software as Richard Stallman would tell you...but i don't personally agree with Mr. Stallman
