I don't know that I'd agree that the BSD process is necessarily 'better' though I will say its done according to this guy's idea of 'professional' and 'sound with respect to "engineering" principles.' Hmmm...from what I read of this rant, anything that would read as 'good' according to this guy's principles should raise a warning flag, given how clueless he seems to be...
