FreeBSD "How long have you been using FreeBSD. Months? Years? Decades? And you love using it because of whatever reason but at the same time you're feeling a bit guilty to use it all for free without giving anything back? Well now you'll have the chance to change that. We at FreeBSD are always in need of new people who are willing to spare some of their time and effort into FreeBSD development."

Alright, I might have been convinced the license could have something to do with it. I also think the lack of focus is a big part. Well, I really think it's more of a lack of manpower than focus, though. Which is kind of the point of the article in the first place. FreeBSD could definitely benefit from somebody who was willing to throw money at their lack of resource problem. As long as that money didn't shift their focus to world domination through software and mobile devices. I guess that would be ok, as long as it was well written, stable software.

I know FreeBSD is geared more toward server use, but it is so fun as a desktop. Gentoo is/was just a fad. What's wrong with ArchLinux?
