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."

I am relax and contrary to you on subject ;-)

I dont think that you using Other OS under other license and even the same license but with other project is going to impact PC-BSD ...

Your rather special qualification of how you perceive PC-BSD code to be is not going to affect its usage and availibility or the license wich its currently under.

You guys talk like Fork are easy to do under BSD and that other projects have the code of other projects when they mostly have trouble keeping up with there own ... Your lying to yourself and to others.

"nor am I exploding in a tremendous rage "

If you say so , thats how I perceived your 5 -6 RELAX , its usually someone who is under extreme lot of stress who repeat relax continuously ...

"(and how would you know?)."

Relax and your tone and written words...

"I am somewhat humoured by your claim that I should be."

Just as I am by your claim of me being stressed by the comment I make.

"BTW: Are you related to NotParker in any way? ;) "

Yes , we are both humans , beside that I would not be able to tell , he hide who he is and is real name. If he is a bot , then I have been really fooled.
