I would; I don't know how many of you know this, but I'm a part-time
BSDI employee, and I think the whole Unix world benefits from some of
the work BSDI can do - partially because they can grab code from the *BSD's
Maybe they could work as an open source system, but I don't know.
Essentially, while it wouldn't hurt me *directly* if NetBSD were under
GPL, it would hurt me a lot *indirectly* - because a lot of useful development
that I'm benefitting from has been done by people who needed the ability
to ship a proprietary box.
At least, that's been my understanding.
