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."

"We can fork code any time"

No , you cant fork closed original you dont have the source code to and closed licensed derivative.

"it would be stupid to make "yetanotherlin...err..unix distro"."

Filling a need that is not in line with a project and making something that work for you is not stupid ...

"Half assed solutions is for Linux community"

Thats why you copy those solution or use them directly ...

"we need more professional developers and commercial support. "

Train your incompetent , show the right way and open new company ... thats what GNU/Linux did.

"BSD license gives us more freedom than you can imagine. "

The BSD License give no freedom , it permits closing by anyone at anytime.

"Stop spreading MS like FUD about GPL is best thing happened to manking after sliced bread. "

FUD dont mean , truth , accuracy and historical recorded event.

"I am a PC-BSD developer"

No , your a contributor.

" and quality manager "


"and I am not working for iXsystems Inc."

Why am I not surprised.

"and even not for PC-BSD Software LLC."

You claimed to be quality manager ...

"I do my own business"


"and recommend to stay others with their own."

Do as I say not as I do ... why did you lie about everything , but specifically the GPL and GNU/Linux , in this very comment?
