Yes, Yes You Can.

Some people don't seem to believe that it's okay to use the code I post. If you want to take my particle generator and throw it up on the App Store, more power to you, but you have to support it. Seriously, you can use it for anything you want. The only thing I ask is that you don't replace my name in the comments. You can feel free to add your name if you make changes or additions, just don't take my name off, and just about anything you want to do with the code is fine by me.

If you do do something cool with it, drop me an e-mail, I'd love to see what you come up with.

There's a serious breakdown in software development land if you have to invest even that much energy on a Saturday to redescribe a BSD/MIT license.

Well, yes and no.

You have to remember that a fair number of readers of this blog come to if from my book which is targeted at beginners. Open Source software is a concept that's hard for people not associated with the industry to accept. There are a lot of misconceptions about it, which are reinforced and even spread by various forces. So I think people can be forgiven for not knowing what is obvious to those of us who have been in software development for a while.

But I was getting tired of the questions. :)
