FreeBSD Not too long ago, Apple open sourced its Grand Central Dispatch library, which aids in developing multithreaded code. It was suggested that it could be ported to other platforms, and the FreeBSD team has done exactly that. They have also done a lot of work related to getting GCD to work in a POSIX environment.

It's a port, not an incorporation or technology, not a development of new technolog , not a starting partnership and attribution of developer to make the technology better and improve it. Not the start of a joint project.

To have a NIH syndrome, you have to invent something of your own or develop something of your own.

Why is BSD subpar to everything else and not a mainstream OS like GNU/Linux , MAc OS X and Apple, if it is as you say incorporating all the best technology an dnot suffering from an NIH syndrome ? Why are most BSD's technology not in FreeBSD.
