FreeBSD We've all heard the age old argument second only to the vi vs. emacs religious wars: FreeBSD Vs Linux. As a long time linux user, I decided that is was time I spent some time on the other side of the fence to see if it was any greener. Oh, and by the way, vi rules.

RE: makes no sense

I've thought seriously of moving completely to Solaris (and purchasing the Intel compiler). But if the *BSDs are more or less GNU free then I'll check them out ASAP.

>>>You are making no sense at all in here..

Really? Sorry about that. You think it makes no sense to use a "commercial" *nix system with the Intel Compiler to avoid the GPL (if the GPL is you pet peeve)? Granted that using GCC is nowhere similiar to "staticly linking" with other GPL software, but you think it makes no sense to use Intel to avoid it (once again, only as a personal matter)? Besides, the Intel compiler has much greater performance from what I've read.

Or is it the "Solaris" part that makes no sense to you? Is Sun Micro _your_ pet peeve? :-) Not trolling at all, just genuinely wondering _why_ this makes no sense to you.
