Let's put personal stuff apart, but if you do not like GPL, why do not you 
pick a proven license as BSD.

Wrong. Debian has DFSG which has been respected for many years now... and does 
not accept or scale with any "seem to (not?)be almost like free softwarez or 
warez". CDDL 1.0 does not scale at all with the proven free software licences 
and needs to be re-thinked in its next version. See the related discussions 
in debian-legal@ for the previous 2-3 months.
