But, BSD dev's gotta start looking into some Linux help too, in the "free-spirit" of things. -it goes both ways soon.
"Clang,..."? fine, that's good for BSD, strip gpl* code, who cares, but as Picard once said: "...just make it work Number 1...!" -It's all good for us.
pacman, OpenRC can be built/ported for this, but it still leaves me with the obvious questions of FreeBSD 10 and beyond, where are the "DRIVERS'" ???
This is a continual ongoing issue, whether we're in Linux-emulation or not, at present. Linux-emulation is outdated and non-senseicle anway, in BSD -other than see, we can be you but you can't be us, right now?
On the other hand, this Linux tool-assisted "visibilty" can only help BSD in more ways than less. At the very hopeful best, it's a chance for OpenHardware, finally to exist, as well. (I mean it's still hardware, DUH, and we still gotta pay for it).
Also, BSD-community/dev's should welcomely-embrace endevours such as ArchBSD, Gentoo/FreeBSD, (not so much kFreeBSD), but anyway, these are big Linux players' who recognize BSD for what it's worth. If torvalds can be curiously-respectful of Microsoft lately (ya, I thought that too, mmmm???!!!) then he can darn well start being a little respectful of *BSD/Unix, it has 'bin around before even any of us, or him. I mean, "...it's just a kernel" right ? -LoL.
So whats it gonna be Beaver(s)?, we all work together, in the "free-spirit" of unix sharing ?, or, divided do we continually fall to the obvious M$/MacO$'s out there -and 'fer nuthin' ?
BSD ain't goin' away, and it ain't dead -by a long shot.
Yes it does need HELP though -but who doesn't, for f* sakes. ?
