Your argument depends on > that claim, since it's also implied in your description of development > team's priorities. Define "we". As I'm not a core developer for FreeBSD, nor anyone in a position of official representation of either the OS development project or the Foundation, my statements in the article should not be taken as necessarily indicative of anyone's opinions but my own. The claim about the "sexy" bits of PC-BSD is based on my experience with tarted-up GUIs and "feature-rich" software. It is intended as a generalization rather than a categorical statement of absolute truth. All stuffy pedantry of mine aside, though, if you want to expand on your concerns, I'd be happy to read about them. -- Chad Perrin [ original content licensed OWL: http://owl.apotheon.org ]
