i am by no means trolling here. I just haven't heard much of anything from the BSD community on the subjects, and would like to know the general consensus. Being that this is more of a support mailing list, if one could direct me to where I can ask this question appropriately, or if folks would reply only to my email addy, that would be fine, too. Impositions here are not my intent.
I have been an avid user of the BSDs (mostly FreeBSD and OpenBSD), and have experimented with the Linuses for a good while now (Mainly Debian, RH, and SuSe). I pretty much get it that the BSD folks and the Linux folks don't see eye-to-eye on licensing issues, but it seems to me that the overall attempt of both communities seems to be "get the code out there and keep it free." I was just wondering what the general consensus was on the GPL, Linux in general, SCOs lawsuit, Sun's open sourcing, IBMs contributions to Linux, Novell's contributions, Novell's deal with MS and how this really affects SuSe (there's a lot of hype on that and I literally don't know what to believe at this point). Being that most folks here would be in positions of having to deal with a variety of OSs and have in the past dealt with opposing forces at work, I figured there would be at least one or two educated folks I could gleen from. Thanks, and sorry for the imposition, Mike PS... One more question... Being that Linux emulation is available as a port for the BSDs, I would assume (but haven't taken the time to research) that GPLd code is used. If there comes to be issues with Linux, what would that mean for BSDs compatibility in regards to emulation? _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
