      They want everything possible to be BSD, but rewriting the kernel driver? Probably way too expensive both time-wise and financially for them to even consider it.

      On a side-note: The out-of-kernel portions of the GPU drivers are almost all under the MIT license, so those would be fine

        ASLR solves almost all of the loopholes which exists in SSP, NX, W^X, ExecSheld and Libsafe. ASLR is a very big thing and FreeBSD is therefore a big blunder. OpenBSD only randomizes the top of thier stack which is not effective.

        Linux however, randomizes thier entire address space (Stack, Heap etc.).

        So STFU.
