Unfortunately, FreeBSD has been delayed, for years now, ever since Apple snapped up over half of the BSD-development team to build their MacOSX for them.
The BSD-license is a whore license. Too bad BSD developers hate the GPL which would have prevented this sort of thing.
From the standpoint from design it's not ... and FreeBSD it's not either
( Even if both share a similar design, I prefer the latter as a personal taste ... for me seems cleaner and with less madness tbh )
┐Slut? that turns me on, grrrThe problem is these programmers hate Freedom and GPL. The are propietary SLUTS thats why they join FailBSD in the first place.
- - - -
┐Regarding license wars? Well, I won't step on that ground ... simply because people "debating" likes fallacies, don't know a crap about copyright, haven't read the actual licenses (just eaten the propaganda from the current youtube video ) and fail to see how a license is a tool and as such: the right tool for the right job.
BSD has its very own trolls here now? Neat. If BSD was so unimportant, why do you actually exist?
BSD isn't proprietary, it's a FREER Unix than Linux on ALL fronts, it is what you want to make of it.
Also, you were almost right, but yes BSD/UNIX development started way back, approx. 1973+, long before U and Torvalds' diapers stank, like they still do.
BSD and Bill Joy,..., later Sun, SunOS, HP-UX, SGI, ...,NetBSD, Cisco, ... (all of them derivatives of BSD/Unix), and then, after countless years of unmitigated LEGAL battles against corpse's like AT&Tea, finally later again (Free)BSD, and even again, today's derivatives such as same as before, + MacOSX, .........
You see, it's actually been around alot longer than your precious DOS, or even LieNUX. AND, it will ALWAYS be around, forever, and ever.
There is nuthin' you or me can do to stop "FREE"BSD. Now, Get Over it.
Don't hate it, just 'cause u don't know how to use it ?!
It is solely becuase of BSD/Unix that you and me are even able to Freely use "TCP/IP" (aka - The Internet, as we know it today, yet another invention by BSD/Unix...)
Anyway, keep "Linux trolling" this FreeBSD thread, and we'll do our very best to Yo, re-educate your dum ass.
And please remeber, that:
Merry Christmas allThe BSD Things in Life are Free
