I don't think you can directly compare to FreeBSD or Linux, since there
is no FreeBSD, Inc. or Linux, Inc. that's in the process of transitioning
a closed/firewalled development model to an open one, with a process for
helping non-employees get contributions in while the transition is going on.

I'm not sure there is any similar project to compare to - perhaps Apple
with their Darwin open source core to MacOS X is the closest I can think of.
