    “Sidekick operated under a BSD-based operating system, making future development virtually unacceptable at Microsoft. The open source platform would have required Microsoft to continue offering source code for additional features and services.”

    The biggest reason why companies like BSD-licensed software instead of GPL-licensed software: The BSD license does *NOT* require you to release your source code!
