This may even be true (although I stronly doubt it for smp
systems), but there is a strong disincentive for working on
BSD systems in that the license doesn't protect the code.

NetApp are a prime example of a company that started with
a *BSD based codebase and have contributed no fixes (to
my knowledge) back to the BSD community. The Windows NT
stack is also *BSD based originally - no return contributions.
This is the "free rider" problem that is why many people prefer to
work on Linux.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
