    The only difference
    (that I can see) between BSDI and GPL software is that you can't give
    it out to people who haven't paid their dues.  This goes against the
    anarcho-socialist principles that seem to motivate Free Software but
    both models are pretty similar in practice.

I see another difference: BSDI will never be a "standard", where as
GPL, for all the anarcho versions that it spawns, will always be a
standard.  Since the value of standards is so prevelent in today's
business climate, I believe that BSDI software is doomed to fail while
GPL code (or other free software) will continue to flourish.
