I don't know if any of you realized it yet, but you got Microsoft riding all our backs trying hard to pull some 007 stuff on us and wipe us out. Fighting each other only gives them more hope that we will be destroyed.
BSD actually holds back Linux by making open source devs waste their time on making thier software portable and not taking advantage of powerful Linux specific features. Just take a look at what KDE devs say: BSD annoy as so much effort has to be spread on portability for an OS that almost doesn't exists on thier usage pie chart. (kraftman has got more info on this, he'll provide the link if you ask him)
So as supporters of Freedom and Open source, the enemy as Apple, Microsoft and BSD.
And yes, BSD has some real issues and I think it comes with the territory, meaning Linux is quickly rising and BSD seems to of lost out quite a bit. It's sad, but what you BSD guys need to do is assess the situation on your end and embark on some workarounds. Put your heads together, I believe you can do it. Losing a member of the Free Software community would be a bad thing, I wish you all the best of luck.
