    First of all, Solaris' engineers specifically asked that ZFS be made GPL incompatible to prevent Linux from siphoning it up and turning it into a part of the Linux kernel where it would rot and...

    Curious to note that you, endman, and Pawlerson all returned at the same time. I wonder why that might be.

    But if you've been running LibreSSL Portable already, when it's clear that this is...

    Hello Pawlerson!

    I'm afraid that evaluating the share of operating systems in the server sphere is not simple. So no one here has any legs to stand on for making definitive statements. But if...

    You raise some valid points. I'm a FreeBSD user, and I've been investigating systemd lately. I retain a lot of criticisms of it, though, which I'll elaborate upon at some time.

    What I find...

    In what way does systemd seperate executable code from daemon configuration that isn't comparable to /etc/rc.conf or /etc/conf.d/whatever vs /etc/rc.d/whatever? Now, I'm not a tremendous fan of...

    This cannot be true, otherwise the nViDiA and FGLRX modules would be illegal.

    The same way everyone else (FreeBSD, NetBSD, certain other Linux distros) circumvents it: you build it as a kernel module.

    This claim has only ever been made by a very strange blog which makes a variety of remarkable assertions - none of which are backed up with any citation - and has been known to urge people to kill...

    1. A bit more code, yes. But I would say the maintenance burden is lesser. The implementation is a bit more work - this is a trade off for simpler maintenance.
    2. Well, any more code has the...

    I maintain a branch of the Runit process supervision system, to which I've been enhancing it to allow it to act as a complete service manager that can replace rc.d/init.d. PID 1 is 350 lines of code....

    Linus Torvalds and the Linux kernel developers do not care. In fact, so little do they care about your 'proof' that they added strlcpy() to the Linux kernel over 11 years ago.

    Actually it would have happened in exactly the same way.

    Apple release the source code to their XNU kernel - but porting it to FreeBSD isn't as easy as you think. Though the two share a lot of...

    Probably none. ASLR isn't really a big deal. It wouldn't have saved you from Heartbleed.

    This is so hilariously outrageous that I don't know how to reply, but I'll try and do so anyway.

    If ZFS 'fucks up' your 'mind and life' then you should perhaps consider legal action. A filesystem...

    There is a lot of permissive software in the world of Free Software with a rich and vibrant history. Xorg and Wayland come to mind.

    What do you mean by 'volume management'? ZFS has datasets which are similar to 'volumes' but far, far more flexible, as well as ZVols, which are exactly as they sound like: volumes.

    I don't believe people are upset about Australis for the new skin - after all, you can just change that, anyway, thanks to Classic Theme Restorer.

    It's the fact that it breaks nearly every theme...

    OpenBSD prefers to keep these things in the default installation, as they're very big fans on auditing literally every line of code in the system. Keeping these things part of the default install...

    It's still available on OpenBSD, even the version they were used (heavily enhanced Apache 1.3). It's just that now you need to get it from Packages or Ports rather than it being included as part of...

    It seems far buggier to me (GNOME-Panel crashes regularly), it's GTK3 only, it's much bigger in size.
