Mercedes Benz powered by NetBSD?
a posting by Fefe
which links to
Open Source licenses used by Mercedes Benz.
This includes a number of BSD variants - original 4-clause as well as the 2- and 3-clause versions
as well as company specific BSD licenses by car-supplier Continental,
Acme Labs and Google.
No explicit mention of NetBSD's license,
but a bunch of NetBSD developers' names and mail addresses can be found.
There is also an overview that the BSD license is used in about all
models from A-Class over S-Class to SLK,
and which also indicates that the new (2013+) S-Class
includes much more BSD licensed software than all the other models.
Which is not much of a surprise, as it's the most recent and
also most technically advanced model (as far as I can tell).
No details are included as to what software components
are under the respective licenses. Anyone got details?
