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.

"Can I ask what "more ideologically developped"


It means someone don't know what they're talking about.
"

Might want to also quote the bit that followed.

It means that the BSDs tend to be more conservative, developing along the lines of what they believe is the best long-term option to deliver a smooth developing path - even if that means not always having the latest and greatest features. Linux, on the other hand, takes a more pragmatic approach, and will happily settle for a less ideal option just to get the latest and greatest feature, even if that means having to do it all again shortly after. This is pretty basic stuff.

It had nothing to do with licenses. Settle down, people. Dear lord.
