that is the whole issue with freebsd.. i agree that the maintainers hav a
very strict coding standard and credit policies. Basically what u wanna say
is that u use Linux because u wan't to contribute to it and get credited for
it too. (I might be wrong here!) But this is something with a particullar
project, and not all projects with bsd licence are like this. My original
point being that just because something does not follow gpl does not mean
that it is crap or that it wud not allow you to contribute. You sounded like
a person who is ill informed abt the licenses (which i am glad to know that
u aren't!!!). Also following your logic, u shudn't be using Apache as it
does not use the GPL license!!!! If u hav a problem with a project, it is a
different issue, but to blame that on the licence is just funny!!!
