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]: Panic mode

Its you who is lying and exploding in a tremendous rage.

"PC-BSD is based on FreeBSD and FreeBSD is not going to be closed-source."

Simple question : You , as a PC-BSD user dont have the full and entire source code of PC-SD ? Why ?

answer : Because PC-BSD aint really Open Source or really Free Software.

"there would be so much code floating around that we could fork it. "

Other people code ... not the exact same code either.

So Panic!
