    Any non-BSD OS.

    Aww.. I have a dirty feeling of getting a free legal microsoft copy, but now - its license-wise.

          Right. My OS is not released with BSD license. Get a clue.

            Your OS uses BSD code, unless you use Windows.

              Hah! Windows uses BSD code and my OS doesn't - it's not licensed under BSD so where is it? Fix your license, then come back trolling. But most likely you won't - and nobody cares. A parts bin license is also needed, but only for interoperability - otherwise, we will have proprietary mushroom and no opensource competitor will make it, just because proprietaries will re-use BSD and a little extra to the "top" - exactly why everyone uses MacOSX instead of BSD. Still clueless?

                Not sure about Windows (MS has probably completely rewritten the TCP/IP stack by now) but AFAIK pretty much every other OS out there has some BSD-licensed code in it. Even if most of the OS code has a different license (eg Linux kernel and GPL) the BSD or X11 bits retain their original license...

                ... or maybe when you say "parts-bin license" that's code for BSD ?

                  That brosis guy seems not to understand the meaning of either "code" or "license"...

                    Name your OS then. Because EVERY OS on the PLANET uses SOME portion of BSD code. Even the linux kernel has BSD code, every GPL project has SOME BSD code. So unless you're about to tell me that you went through, made your own operating system, used ALL GPL projects, checked the source OF those projects and if you found one file that was tagged as BSD-licensed you rewrote that file yourself, and did that for ALL components of your chosen operating system.

                    So yeah, name your OS Brosis. Because you had to have written most of it by yourself.
