FreeBSD The FreeBSD team has released FreeBSD 7.3, the fourth release of the 7-STABLE branch. There will be one more release in this branch, but at this point, most developers are already working on the 8-STABLE branch. FreeBSD 7.3 focusses on bug fixes, but has a few new features as well.

I agree that hardware support is not a major factor, but I can also tell you what it is: it's culture. Yes, there are struggling volunteers porting HAL, ALSA, PulseAudio, V4L, Flash etc., but they're struggling because they came from another world and don't realize that most of us have no need for that technology anyway. What was needed was already implemented by the FreeBSD and other project in superior forms.

And about domination of any operating system there's not much to say. Picture yourself a Gauss curve then meditate on who dominates who again.
