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.

It's not bs. GPLv3 is not acceptable for the base OS. I can't help it if you cannot accept that the project has requirements and actually sticks to the requirements.

Yes, GPLv3 was the problem.


It also goes beyond just the license when
it comes to using and maintaining the compiler.

What problem occured with using GCC after 4.2.1 that was NOT GPLv3, please elaborate.


The base OS compiler is what counts the most. It's a concept that seems to be lost on Linux people.

Again, what problems beyond 4.2.1 did GCC introduce apart from a licence shift to GPLv3?
