This is slightly off topic... but anyone know the differences between and xFree86?

I was using FreeBSD for the longest time (and some varieties of Linux, OpenBSD, etc) and all where xFree86. I was out of the "scene" for a bit (but still running and recently upgraded to 6.2 and it has all over the place.
no more traces of xfree86 anywhere!

now it's at 7.2 :)

Anyone know why split from xFree86? From what I can tell it looks the same (same files, same options etc)... was it just a licensing change or something like that?

Just wondering the history behind the different naming and what all changed? Why was it "forked"?
