It lets everyone use the code as long as it's not to make money with and is freely shared with anyone who asks. BSD licenses have the option of blocking out people to changes made to code licensed under it. GPL is much more free because it is academic in nature; BSD is more practical and personal in nature. And no, practical is not always better.Orkie posted on Sep 24 2006 at 06:50 PM said:I think you are wrong. The GPL is less free because it doesn't let anybody use the code.iignotus posted on Sep 24 2006 at 07:40 PM said:There are two kinds of freedom -- the kind where you only take yourself into account, and the kind where you acknowledge that freedom should be inherent to everyone. If you want the former, use a license such as BSD; if you want the latter, GPL is the license you should use. There is no other license with the benefit of everyone in mind moreso than the GPL.
