    Does that mean, it is only a matter of time before the end of all BSD? I mean there isn't seems to be any fight for FreeBSD on server.

        Isn't the Tencent conglomerate a key operator behind the PRC's dystopian so-called social rating programme and the regime's main technology (software) partner, for better and else?

        Considering their regular modus operandi I would've thought FreeBSD would have been a better match, momentum permitting.

          Because they operate with complete official legitimacy under the newly-eternal president, and they can mostly choose whether or not to respect copyright law, they needn't hide anything.

            What does it have to do with copyright law?

              The primary difference that would be relevant to a choice between Linux and FreeBSD for Tencent would be copyleft, but that depends on respect for copyright law.

                copyleft is benefical indirectly. it gives linux most manpower among all os kernels, so it is fastest developing kernel (not just compared to freebsd, which is tiny)

                    What the fuck. Tencent owns Riot Games.

                    Its a slap to the face to have their software have no plans of deploying to Linux & joining The Linux Foundation.
