I quite agree. BSD should be sold on it's merits, not because we're not in
a legal pickle.
It wasn't that long ago that the BSDs had legal problems - the infamous
1992 AT&T case against BSDi. Some reckon that case is one of the reasons
BSD is not better known. Linux was starting to get press about then, and
BSD was deep in a court case. That pretty much made the choice for some.
for more reasons BSD isn't more well known.
