[Box Backup] License

hello

 While I'm not sure about what is your bussiness plan once 
the software is BSD licensed -ie when what you make money
off is not from the software it self- you may check the 
sendmail model. 

  Sendmail is free enough to be in the OpenBSD tree and 
there's Sendmail.COM where you can buy support, and some 
extra features and tools. 

 It is included in all and every UNIX distribution (well, 
almost all I know) what makes it the first available option 
for the sysadmin to try. In the same way you may submit Box
Backup to be included on different OS distributions, 
including the commercial ones, of course.

 I guess reviews on different web sites would attract more
google people than 'powered by' links. A post in deadly,
slashdot, etc. would put Box Backup on the eyes of 
everybody. You may even try to write something for sysadmin
magazine or others to catch the magazine-reader type of IT
people.

 Hope this helps

Juan
