Comment: Open Source License (Score 5, Insightful) 630 630

The vast majority preferred permissive licenses such as the MIT, BSD, or Apache licenses, rather than the GPL. Has the younger generation given up on ideas like copyleft and Free Software?

No, they haven't. They've just noticed that licenses like BSD is better open source license than GPL. There's a simple reason for it too - BSD license is truly in the spirit of freedom. Anyone, either open or closed source projects, can use BSD licensed code.

This means younger generation haven't forgotten about open source licenses (BSD is one), they've just chosen the better one of them.
