FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

FSF-like Ideology against GPL

BSDs hate the GPL. One big goal for FreeBSD 10 is to be GPL free (in base) http://wiki.freebsd.org/GPLinBase

I think that is a last resort effort for gaining any traction against linux, which won't work, but it is still nice to have a fully BSD(like) licensed base. Took them long enough.
