FreeBSD popularity will be affected if the big cats (ie. networking companies) continue to ""not contribute"" back the enhancements/modifications to the kernel, networking stack, optimizations etc etc ! Gentoo userland and emerge tools are easier and elegant though not certainly superior to FreeBSD make mechanism. This is based on my personal experience as i heavily use Gentoo Linux and FreeBSD on older hardware. And offcourse, i can easily emerge pine 4.64 on Gentoo but there is no way i can do it on FreeBSD. Does anybody know where FreeBSD (in particular) (NetBSD and OpenBSD) is headed ? What is the road map ? Please don't tell me that *BSD is a nice community project (which it is) and the charter is to flip burgers (i mean code) for the next networking company to take the code and run away ! i'm very hopeful that somebody will share some insight on the road map. -- thanks Saifi. -- If you don't know where you want to go, any path can take you there -- _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
