_Running_ Linux software and _being_ Linux(-based) are two completely different things. FreeBSD runs (most) Linux (and glibc based) software, but is a completely different (and mostly unrelated) codebase wrt. to the libc and the kernel. The distinction is pretty much the same with Wine: Wine can run Windows binaries (mostly), but because of that it still isn't Windows. -- Heiko Wundram Product & Application Development _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
