Im sure there are plenty. They are different ideas about 'free'. Fortunately
the non advertising BSD copyright appears to be fully GPL compliant and
lots of people are happy to dual license things so that both visions of
'free' can use the same stuff.

Linux & BSD share several drivers, some sync ppp code and other things
like pieces of the Mac booter. So such arrangements do work.
