    True, but in practise it is as he said. In a BSD-licensed file, if I do a change licensed under the GPL, it "taints" the file in that it as a whole is GPL. My change cannot be merged to any BSD codebase under the BSD license, and as those changes accumulate, finding out which parts are still only BSD becomes rather unwieldy.

    This happens in the linux kernel a lot.
    I think you mean if you combine it in a 'greater work' under a GPL license.

      Yes, that exactly.

        I found this google+ thread about Mattew Dillon, the creator of dragonflyBSD:

        https://plus.google.com/101384639386...ts/Dkb8iixE4eP

        DragonflyBSD and BSD for that matter is absolutely uneeded. And people like crackpot Dillon need to stop wasting their time on a pile of shit just because he was kicked out of some shitting club (FreeBSD project). It would have been much better if he just joined Linux and help it improve farther.

        Right now his just copying Linux kernel techniques just to make his pile of shit have 80% linux performance. I really don't see the point. Join Linux stop making shit.

          Next time read comments.

          I used to have a friendly competition with the FreeBSD serial driver author; we would try to compete on who could minimize the CPU overhead of serial processing for kermit transfers over multiple 115kbps serial links. Competition can be a good thing; we challenged each other to make things better, and we swapped tricks and tips about how to do it. Ultimately, I was able to make change to the tty layer to reduce overhead, while the FreeBSD team at the time still considered core architectural issues to be handed down on stone tablets from the Gods of CSRG, so he was finally unable to keep up with me. It was fun while it lasted, though. :-)

            Just want to add that, as a Windows and Mac user, I find the posts about how much more popular Linux is compared to BSD kinda cute. As if anyone cares about one of those these days. Ok, not quite true. At least BSD has the power to serve as a great code snippets collection for MacOS. GNU/Linux is just useless. Carry on.

              If you're going to insult somebody in such a crude manner, at least use correct grammar.

                lesterchester seems to be just another incarnation of the antiBSD troll.

                May I ask you why you think that you are entitled to demand which open source developer works for which project?

                  If you're going to troll, at least put some effort in first.

                    Don't know what your problem is whether it's losing an argument with other people or trying to stereotype people who don't agree with you. False accusations accusations aren't going to help.

                    I'm not demanding, I'm questioning a wasteful decision. Look at DragonflyBSD, thoier clearly copying Linux methods as though they want become Linux themselfs. Won't it be better if they just join Linux to make it faster rather then working on one backwater that will soon die and no one uses?

                      You have the same writing style, come up with the same non-sense arguments and are even using the same insults. Doesn't have to do anything with loosing an argument (which is pretty hard to do anyways, since you aren't able to come up with something that can even be called argument).

                      It doesn't matter at all if you think that they try to copy Linux, even if they really would be doing that. They have decided to have their own version of BSD and to work on it. That is their right to do so and you questioning it will not change anything on that. What makes you think that those guys would work on Linux and not on one of the other BSDs anyways?
