The (Free)BSD license specifically allows you to use FreeBSD how ever you see fit along you don't impede someone else's right to do the same. Since FreeBSD it is self is a free download you never have to pay for it.... i.e. it is 100% "free beer"... ironically there is nothing that prevents you from repacking and selling the repacking... if you really want to know the good, bad and ugly of the BSD license vs. other ones read the recent thread "freebsd problems as I see them" in -current (and the continuation of the licensing sub-thread in my private inbx if you really want to)... please note I think the BSD license under rates the true value of the work being done but since it is clear from the above sub-thread that I am in the minority I will not debate it. - -- Aryeh M.
