FreeBSD "Linux has a large amount of device drivers for hardware not supported on FreeBSD, especially USB devices. Not rarely, such drivers have been written based on information derived by protocol sniffing, reverse engineering and the like. This makes the code highly undocumented, and renders the porting effort extremely error prone. To help with this task, I decided to start working on an emulation layer that would let us recompile the linux source code on FreeBSD, and provide a sufficiently complete emulation of the kernel APIs so that device drivers (or at least certain classes) could be used without modifications to their source code."

"slandering and libel"

Found a thesaurus, eh? Doesn't make any deference as it's still painfully obvious your still spouting the same aggressive prose as before.

Dude, stuff like this is pure flame bait and frankly I'm tired of hearing your ignorant anti BSD waffle every time theirs a BSD related article on this site.

FFS, either give it a rest or grow up!
