Basically, the majority of their core code is BSD as well as proprietary. The BSD license does allow for the binary distribution of code with only crediting the author. One of the joys of the truly free BSD license.

"The BSD license does allow for the binary distribution of code with only crediting the author."

And agreeing to not sue the author, and that the notice must remain in place in both source and binary form. If you're gonna bash it, at least get it right ;^)

Actually, I'm not bashing it. I'm a BSD user myself and prefer the BSD-license over GPL!
