Remember that flash drives still have a limit on the total number of writes; spinning drives don't

Seriously? Spinning drives don't have a limit on the total number of write? You actually believe that? What I think you mean is that spinning drives aren't guaranteed to work for at least a minimum number of writes.

If that were wholly the case, then why is *BSD not *THE* OS out there used in everything from routers to mobile phones to desktops to servers?

When you simplify it to the terms you're using, things completely break down.

Some things the GPL makes sense for.

Some things BSD makes more sense.

Not everything is or HAS to be with one license.

Everyone should take some serious note here: DarkPlaces is a derivation of the original Quake GPL release with many enhancements. If it has any substantive pieces of Quake code in it, ZeniMax has a MAJOR say in things and nobody's asked if they've blessed their part of this or not.
