An anonymous reader writes " BMC threw down an open source licensing gauntlet at OSCON by making several open source integration projects available under the BSD License. Claiming that the BSD conferred the most freedom on developers, and doesn't mandate what they can or must do with code they modify BMC's open source leader whurley continues to shock the systems management marketplace into submission publicly challenging HP, IBM, and CA to follow suit and provide their users and developers with true freedom. Linux Today , eWeek , The Register , and industry analyst James Governor all are shocked and impressed by this move, but the real question is...Can HP, CA, and IBM possibly keep up with BMC's new open source leadership and their unexpected openness."
