There is more similarities between the BSD setup than between various Linux distributions. Take, for example, sound. It is a layer that has kernel access in FreeBSD. Even OSS has kernel level modules. In Linux there is sound, and alsa, and pulse, and bits of esound to make the system work. A bit of difference, eh? Look also at the implementation of NFS on Linux. They would have saved a lot of time doing an exact porting to Linux but that was ignored. NFSv3 is more common than NFSv4 because the latter in Linux is still in the developmental and porting stage. --Actually, it is easier to see the similarities between the NFS implementations and see the exact similarities than working with comparing sound between the systems.-- It is Linux chasing to be on an equal plane and it is the wrong way to do things. Recently CLang and GCC developers decided to forego the silliness proposed by Stallman and work together. A bad analogy no less but, it is still relevant. Why would anyone want to lock a system into a single piece or set of software unless they did not want development to continue in other areas. I, like other enthusiasts, prefer a system that is simple, stable, to the point, and easily configured. If one wants to use the idea as an alternative then by all means do so; but, do not make it a requirement, keep it as an option for those who want it. _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
