Nobody made the OpenSSH developers give their product away for free. It was a choice they made. If they wanted money from it, they should be selling binaries or selling source licenses.

Stop begging.

Theo is complaining that Sun is using the BSD licence as it was intended. If he wanted Sun to play nice, he should have used the LGPL or something similar... whining that corporations are acting in their own best interest is not really that productive.
