Thing got surprisingly out of hand.   Unless there were some private
messages passed back and forth that did not make it on the list, I
don't think anything in earlier posts from any side of this noise
warranted the flames that seemed to leap out.    Everyone around gets 
boogers now and then.   I save mine for when I really need them.

But, I still don't understand your comments on methodology and fundamentals.
They don't seem to relate to anything.    FreeBSD is UNIX and does things
in a UNIX way.   I guess that is a methodology.   It is created and supported
by volunteers who use it themselves and make it freely available to others.
There is a very well managed system for development and modification with 
regular and fairly efficient procedure to submit and approve fixes and new 
features.  Changes to the system are vetted much better than most others, 
including other OS systems as well as unnamed commercial systems.  There is 
pretty good, maybe not perfect, management of versions.

These are FreeBSD fundamentals.

So, maybe would a change to advertising supported "reality" entertainment 
instead of producing a reliable operating system meet your requirement
for a change in fundamentals?    It is certainly hard to tell from what
was posted.   Anyway, I prefer sticking to the fundamentals already
in place.
