FreeBSD 9.0 RC2 Arrives Late, Pushes Back Final
Phoronix: FreeBSD 9.0 RC2 Arrives Late, Pushes Back Final
The good news: FreeBSD 9.0 RC2 is now available. The bad news with that announcement: FreeBSD 9.0 RC2 is late, which also means the third (and last) release candidate has been pushed back along with the final release. Hopefully FreeBSD 9.0 will arrive in time for Christmas...
GPL is evil so I support FreeBSDs desire to free themselves from that license.
Well FreeBSD could use some more developers. They have a disadvantage in that e mindset is with Linux these days.

Rewrite thousands of lines of code that already existed because we hate the GPL: check
On the other hand Apple releases much in the way of open source that works its way back into FreeBSD.
Version of ZFS that is already stale: check
NIH some features that have been in Linux since 2007: check
Working Radeon HD 5000+: Deferred indefinitely
X.org Server: 4 versions behind
At least we're unpaid Apple employees that don't give a damn if our software stays freely available or openly licensed: double check
Your position on FreeBSD is strange to say the least. Do you really expect every open project to be managed like Linux?
