    Phoronix: Intel KMS/DRM Driver Readied For OpenBSD

    BSDs have struggled with their graphics drivers for years but at least the situation is slowly improving...

    Excellent news! I've been looking forward to this for quite some time. NetBSD: you're up next ;-)

        CVS ?

        Seriously ? They really use CVS for their version control ?

          Yep, they even reimplemented it (OpenCVS)!
          Given that subversion is BSD/Apache licensed, it is really strange..

            wscons?

            Cool!

            "including a beautiful accelerated wscons framebuffer console!"

            btw, what is this wscons?
            Is it like kmscon on Linux?

              Or reimplement Git instead, if GPL is unacceptable.

                They always reinvent the wheel (to make a crappier wheel). So they can be better proprietary *****.
                Do explain how the BSD license is proprietary, will you?

                  So because it doesn't force you to keep things open means its pro-proprietary? What's to stop someone from taking sommat BSD licensed and re-licensing it under GPL? Would that mean it's pro-freedom? Besides, as it says in the very first sentance of your link: "Many free and open source aware people and advocates including the FSF believe software under the BSD or BSD-like ISC licenses are free and open software."

                  Difference is, imho, that the BSD license counts on you to be friendly enough to share, whereas the GPL forces you to share (though that doesn't stop GPL violations...)

                  That said, were I ever to create sommat (and I am planning on learning to code) I would license it under the GPL.

                    You took the unreliablest source you could find. That the author of these blog is not only a troll but also a blatant liar can be seen alone in his first post on that blog, where he states that he uses gNewSense on all his machines for 8 years now, which actually is 2 years longer than the project even exists.
                    Let's see if you will correct this, since I still think that this is your personal blog.
