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.

I can't see why GNU/GPL zealots have trouble understanding that some want blocked code where people won't be able to close it later on and some want free code which can be used for whatever purpose?

I for one don't want to use GPL as I believe it's very damaging to future development of new fantastic software. I want free code, Is that so difficult to respect? I respect if someone wants to have unfree/unliberal code using GPL and force others to keep it open so that companies can't develop it further and close it.
