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.

Because FreeBSD make nothing worthwile of it's own accord ...

Geez, Moully. Your *BSD hatred is becoming (or actually, has long become) very tiresome. I usually just ignore you. But *please* stop slavering and frothing so. I happen to prefer Linux to *BSD for my particular use cases. As a user, I happen to prefer copyleft to more permissive licensing. But I'm glad that the *BSDs are there. And the *BSD guys are doing a great job for the folks they serve. You are an embarrassment to those of us who like Linux but respect authors and users of other OSes. You are an embarrassment to those of us who prefer copyleft, but respect authors who choose other licenses under which to release their works.

You have preferences, as most of us do. But you lack the *respect* for others that most of us learned in kindergarten. In fact, sometimes I feel that you got stuck in kindergarten and are forever posting from there.

Some might tell me to stop feeding the troll. But you are not a troll. I've known you too long to think that. You are simply overenthusiastic and tactless.
