Now, now. This smells a bit like FUD. Which is better, litigation-wise: GPL or proprietary? BSA anyone?

Look. BSD is a fine kernel. It's a perfectly reasonable decision to base one's product on that. If you do embedded Windows, you'd have to abide by Microsoft's conditions, if you do Linux, it's GPL V2 (which is way less burdensome, I assume you'd agree), if you do BSD, then it's the BSD license. Where's the problem?
