Why a BSD license?

I had a conversation with a coworker today about what phone to buy, and I thought about this: iPhones are pretty, but you don’t get to own your software or fully choose what to run.  This developer’s blog entry sums up all the things you can’t do with Apple’s App Store, and by doing so manages to describe the opposite of open source.  (via, I think)  The point I’m making: BSD licensing is more valuable than you think.

  1. Yeah and the BSD license is very small, so even I can understand it xD

    I like OpenBSDs idea of using the ISC License (which is a smaller equivalent of the BSDL) for that reason.
