    EdgeBSD: BSD is getting more and more fragmentated. More versions appearing that are incompatible with each other. Unlike Linux in which all distros are binary compatitble. The number of BSD versions and BSD fragments are converging. Soon there be an average of one user per BSD version and then the number of BSD versions will decrease to zero and the world would be a better place.
    Bad news for you, kid... In 2012 the FreeBSD Foundation received 500.000+ in donations. In 2013 it received 700.000+. Sorry, but BSD is more alive than ever (that will keep you busy).

    You are kidding HYUASHFYUHASYUFHUASHFUYHAUSFHUYAHSFUYHAYUSHFYUAHSF YUHASYUFHUYASHFYUHASD.
    You are a disgusting troll, Linux in which all distros are binary compatible????? Tell me why Steam and Lightworks cannot run on Debian Stable!!!! Tell me why GNOME just works fine in RPM distros. You sucks!!!

    Neither of them are dead. Keep smoking on the crack pipe.

    As if the situation with Operating Systems based on the Linux kernel are any better. There are hundreds of Operating Systems based on the Linux kernel and that's not fragmentation? Are you kidding me? distro is a term created by the communities around these Operating Systems and all it does is confuse people. What they really mean is Operating System as that is what they are. There are more than enough Linux based Operating Systems that are literally run by one or two users and that's it.

    Wrong, gnome is nearly dead and most people are using its derivatives like Cinnamon and Unity. Furthermore, KDE has larger market share according to polls. Even if Gnome concentrated only on Linux it still terribly sucks. For example gnome shell is slow, unstable mess and gnome applications are featureless.

    Well not really. Distributions are not really distinct operating systems, there's too much shared code to call them that. It's rather like taxonomy and evolution - there's no distinct line drawn when a species becomes another species, it's more a continuous, fluid transformation where genetic material changes in small increments... the same way Linux distros evolve and change and breed other Linux distributions and branch out and some of the branches flourish while others wither and die. It's not called a "software ecosystem" just for shits and giggles...

    Honton/funkStar, is that you?

    Indeed there is, you have a new species when the individuals of the new branch can not interbreed anymore with the old branch. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speciation

    This is either some of the best trolling I've seen in a while, or ...nevermind

    That only applies to parallel diverging branches, it does not apply to linear evolution from parent species to child species, and even then it isn't an absolute or consistent rule, as related species can sometimes interbreed even when they're clearly considered different species (horse/donkey/zebra, lion/tiger, dog/wolf...)

    I see your wikipedia link and raise by another: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Species_problem
