Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu Mark Shuttleworth is trying to entice OpenSUSE developers to join Ubuntu. "Novell's decision to go to great lengths to circumvent the patent framework clearly articulated in the GPL has sent shockwaves through the community. If you are an OpenSUSE developer who is concerned about the long term consequences of this pact, you may be interested in some of the events happening next week as part of the Ubuntu Open Week."

On the contrary, despite the FBSD community's protestations to the contrary, Linux's hardware support is MUCH better (despite qualms over binary blobs which the FBSD folks claim not to worry about), and their communities tend to be much more helpful and more polite.

I realise that "politeness" is orthogonal to the question for many FBSD folks, but that's exactly the problem.

In fact OpenBSD claims to support more wireless chipsets than FBSD without using binary blobs.
