Nope. The original BSD license places restrictions on how you may
advertize BSD-based products. (must mention UC Berkeley) While the
university has dropped this requirement, many people cloned the
license with their own name in place of UC Berkeley. Thus you may
not advertize NetBSD without including a huge list of contributers.
