PC-BSD "iXsystems, an enterprise-class hardware solution provider, announced today its acquisition of PC-BSD, a rock solid UNIX operating system based on FreeBSD. PC-BSD is a fully functional desktop operating system running FreeBSD version 6, with a KDE desktop interface and graphical system installer. Its PBI system, developed exclusively for PC-BSD, lets users download and install their applications in a self-extracting and installing format. iXsystems' acquisition of PC-BSD will provide funding to the PC-BSD project to increase distribution of PC-BSD and develop future versions of PC-BSD. Development is currently underway for a version of PC-BSD that will allow for easy installation and operation on servers, workstations, and laptops."

RE[3]: Could be a very smart move

Member since:

So freedom means taking others work without compensating them in the manner by which they have chosen to be paid (in this case by only using their source code under a license compatible with the one they made it available to you with)?

In other words, you are just a thief and the "freedom" you want is to take that which you did not create and use it in a way you do not have permission to. Nice.
