Anyway, the showstopper for me is the point:
- The FreeBSD community focuses more on tech than on licensing and political activism like a certain freeware Unix "alike"
So they openly dislike people who care about software freedom and work hard to protect users from the abuses so common for proprietary software? They do not mind their code being taken, have nasty features added and then used to oppress users with no recourse available to them but they do have a problem when it gets released under the GPL for free and for anyone to modify as they wish with guarantees it won't get used against others in proprietary sw?
Not taking into account that they seem to whine about licenses much more than the GPL proponents (not that there would be something wrong with advocating for certain license based on ones values) the above revelation of the mindset of the users/dev of BSD is enough for me to never use it.
I do care about a philosophical background of a project/license and I do find people that not only do not care but actively badmouth people who do distasteful.
