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.

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.


I don't think this has anything to do with gaining traction against Linux. Linux is and has been more popular than *BSD for years, and I think the BSD devs know and accept this. In fact, not having to compete with linux gives them the space and time to focus on pursuing goals of a more philosophical nature, like replacing all BSD incompatible licensed software in the base install.
