License Report at RIAForge

I just got an IM from Neil M asking what the most popular OS licenses were at RIAForge. I had never really thought to even care about that before - but it was definitely an interesting question. I wrote up a quick SQL script in Aqua Data Studio and was happy to discover they allow you to export results into HTML. Here are the results:

        </TR>
    </TABLE>

And wow - that is some ugly HTML, I mean it even uses the FONT tag. Still though - darn handy feature to have! (I should add a 'Export to HTML' feature to my database explorer.)
