Since I assume many of the programmers here are into the open source ideology, I was wondering which open source license agreement is most popular here. I'm not a big fan of the GPL (although the LGPL is better) so I like to use the MIT license.

/* edit: It's nice to have some links. */
Here's a link to some licenses for those unfamiliar with them.

If your license is not listed in the link above, please post a link to it so others can read it. :)

I'm a huge fan of the MIT license. All of my projects go under that license.

I never was fond of virus effect GPL brings. *dodges rocket* :D

I've noticed that open source breeds morons. Maybe it's because these are 13 year olds, but I'm assuming it's because they have the word "LINUX" imprinted on their brains...case in point: www.youngprogrammers.net - it's like arguing with a piece of cardboard.
