Nothing in BSD will prevent closing down. Everything in GPL is designed to keep seperate from closed source.

BSD is not free software, it is "public software", public domain plus small copyright notice.

This is the single difference that results in 3 clause vs 5 page license difference.

Pay attention to MacOSX, its in essence a stolen BSD.

And BSD crowd is trolling Linux, how them should be desktop OS too and how Linux prevents it. This is ridiculous they don't storm Apple for some things to put back! They are what their license is.
So, the BSD license gives you the FREEDOM to do whatever you want with the code (like closing it) and yet is not FREE software.
The GPL FORCES you to stick with a license and an 'ideology' and yet it is considered FREE software.
The irony...
