Of course, such challenges between open source devs is always welcome, it will delivier better products. But if Piggin is just trying to kill the news about FreeBSD then he's just wrong. Jeff and Kris has been in contact with Linux devs and discussed these issues for the past year to improve and point out weaknesses. So, when someone just appears in one day to prove that Linux is l33t and better is just .....
