    Phoronix: OpenBSD Foundation At Risk Of Shutting Down

    The OpenBSD Foundation is running into a situation of lack of funding to the point that they can't even cover their electricity costs and may be forced to suspend or reduce their operations without additional help...

    You have tried to pull this crap some time ago already with one of your other alter egos (was it tron_ston? I don't remember, you have so many). This only shows that you actually don't have a clue at all how these licenses work.

    It doesn't work like that.

    Let me politely point out here that Sergio doesn't even use BSD in his projects or even as his main computing platform which makes him the true hypocrite. Sergio uses Ubuntu with the Mir display server. And his project's license is GPLv3.

    By the way, Xorg already has many addons that are GPL licensed which makes the entire thing GPL not MIT/BSD.

    If that is your contribution, then STFU and actually do something useful, if you really care that much.
    If you didn't notice yet, I only comment when some bsd fanboys start attacking GPL. What I've written about BSD so far is just truth. You weren't able to prove me wrong on few points I've made in this discussion.

    2. So suddenly you forget what license is Xorg (or maybe Wayland?) is distributed under? How convenient!
    Furthermore, making permissive-licensed software is a 'crime', but USING it is not? How convenient!
    HYPOCRITE.
    I was thinking about the BSD license. If it will make you happier I wouldn't support Xorg.

    3. You must watch the talk he gave, not the interview (how about W^X?).
    I read the presentation. W^X (or its equivalent) is also present in Linux. ASLR appeared two years earlier in Linus OS, but W^X is probably OpenBSD project.

    Good job making yourself look like a butthead.
    Is this commenter some kind of god I have to agree with? Stop kidding.

    2. I don't know, maybe? I didn't check my distribution, but how does it make me a hypocrite? I don't support proprietary friendly software.
    3. It's hard to say which technics were pioneered by OpenBSD (ASLR was introduced by PaX for Linux), but it's nice interview.
