thus, it is not 'Free', this managed by 'consumers like Isilon, NetApp, Juniper, and many others'?

These and other companies contribute significantly to the FreeBSD Project -- witness, for example, NFS locking support, new NFS RPC code, and the MPSAFE VFS, both contributed by Isilon in the last ten years. Not gratuitously renaming files and directories is not a high price to pay for those contributions :-). And, remember that a moderate number of our developers work for companies that use FreeBSD in products, so we're not just helping disconnected end-users: they are members of the community.
