You see, there are many powerful entities which are no longer "donors". They've become members of process at this point. At the end of day, opensource is about cooperation and collaboration, where joint efforts on large-scale task allow to do such task in reasonable time with adequate quality. And that's where exactly BSD guys fail all the time. Corporations consider them as free lunch and do not really integrate into development process or commiting too much code back. So BSD development is slow. BSD guys always lack manpower to do the things. And best of all they do not really care about any troubles of corporations or other users of their OS outside of core team. All this approach had it's price: now BSDs are getting "not so popular" even on servers. You see, to force yahoo or apache to move servers on Linux, BSDs should really lose in many areas. Because it's pain in the rear to change OS on large deployments, re-educate admins, etc. If someone does this, there should be serious advantage from such move. Failure to understand such a simple thing is really silly to my taste.
