Graphics, User Interfaces "Here it is, at last. Gnash 0.8.1 no longer segfaults on FreeBSD, I've solved all configure problems, all dependencies are checked, all test builds completed successfully. Behold, native Flash player for FreeBSD. It seems like I'm the first to try it, so why not do some tests while the port is being committed? I wonder, can I play flash games now? Can I be see those shiny flash banners? Can I watch YouTube videos at last?"

<sarcasm>Gnash in FreeBSD. But it's a GNU project released under the GPL. Oh, no, can't have that.</sarcasm>

It's good to see that people can see beyond the nonsensical bullshit debates that often arise here. Both the BSD and the GPL are both copyleft licenses,even if the GPL makes it easier and more likely for all branches of the same tree to continue being developed under the same license into the future.

BSD is not a "copyleft" license. Look up the term. Kirk McKusick used to joke that it was a "copycenter" license: take it down to the copy center and make as many copies as you want.
