No one cares about BSD anymore. The make up only 1% of all open-source operating systems (even though they should not be considered open source) and that number is decreasing.
And all the funding came from proprietary software companies like apple and microsoft so they can later convert BSD code intro proprietary software and not give any back.The FreeBSD foundation exceeded it's funding goal of 500.000k USD by more than 50% (Where was the news about that?!

You mean the useless piece of shit called "pkgng" which they tried to copied from linux? That shit doesn't even have repositories and according to disgruntled FreeBSD users, the packages conflicts with the ports tree and in fact many FreeBSD users what to switch back to the old pkg_tools(Source: http://forums.freebsd.org/showthread.php?t=37203). So pkgng? Total shit hole.and there are some awesome features coming up (the new package manager looks amazing and imho beats everything to ground Linux has to offer).
The point is they'll get it sorted in 5 years time and by that Linux has moved far ahead.I am pretty sure, when time comes, those things will get sorted out.
Good that you use Linux always put all your support behind it. Putting support behind BSD is like helping the enermy. This is important as BSD's goal is to eliminate linux and help M$ and CrApple so Linux and BSD can't co-exist. One must go and the best option is BSD should go.Don't get me wrong, I also use Linux everyday and like it very much. But I also loved the BSD's and want them to succeed as well!
