Since much of the discussion in this newsgroup
focuses on license features and requirements, saying that Mac OS X
"is" BSD needlessly confuses that issue.

Saying that Mac OS X is BSD is:

1. true

2. a counterexample to the claim that linux is trouncing BSD UNIX.

The original claim was that linux was dominating BSD UNIX because of the GPL. The 5x web client numbers for Mac OS X show that non-GPL licensed UNIX (here, BSD, APSL) in fact has much greater numbers than GPL linux.

Finally, the APSL requires that modifications to *covered code* (i.e., the APSL library or code you are using in your larger work) be open sourced if your larger work is distributed. You are not required to open source the whole larger work, something that the GPL *does* require, and the LGPL, like the APSL, does not.
