FreeBSD "In December 2003, I wrote a script for remotely upgrading a linux system to FreeBSD. I gave it a catchy name ('Depenguinator', inspired by the 'Antichickenator' in Baldur's Gate), announced it on a FreeBSD mailing list and on Slashdot, and before long it was famous. Unfortunately, it didn't take long for changes in the layout of FreeBSD releases to make the Depenguination script stop working; so for the past three years I have been receiving emails asking me to update it to work with newer FreeBSD releases." And now it's back.

"That doesn't mean that FreeBSD.org wants to be responsible"

Thats the point precisely , bunch of irressponsible people complaining how they are always behind everyone else because of a bunch of self invented excuses ...

Simply put your either a fool or a BSD for not adopting , using , supporting or doing something that help your project adoption or platform adoption.

I guess , GNU/Linux hype and FUD is behind that one too ...
