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.

Seem to me BSDs and FreeBSD in particualr is unable to develop anything on it's own. It as to relly on hand out and little crumb given to them instead of real partnership and complete contribution both ways.


Yeah, because the whole of GPL as a wider community consists of just the Linux guys (Do you refuse to use CUPS because it's owned by Apple?)

Or that Linux just runs GPL software (You run apache on your Linux webservers right?)

It's all open source so stop the f*c£!ng flame-wars!!!
