     3While each program or package available from OSGeo4W has it's own license, they are all [http://www.opensource.org/docs/osd open source]. For example GDAL/OGR is X/MIT, GRASS is GPL, and uDig is LGPL, to highlight just 3 prominent applications.

     5OSGeo4W itself only has two applications, [wiki:pkg-setup] and [wiki:pkg-apt]. All others are simply convenient re-packaging of projects from elsewhere. The PackageListing describes each of the packages and where they are acquired from. To determine a particular application's license terms examine the [http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/release/ install package] and/or the source projects' website.
