Hello, have you heard of WebKit?

The majority of webkit is LGPL licenced, what is your point?

FreeBSD doesn't want to be a Desktop OS. It doesn't even mention the word on it own home page.

It was a response to darknexus notion that it's a good thing for a project when a company picks up their source and not contribute their changes back because in his words 'competition drives innovation'.

I pointed out that even if FreeBSD would want to compete with OSX on the desktop they would have no chance since Apple can take all of FreeBSD's improvements while keeping their own to themselves.
