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.

GPL = Big Brother Software

Now that all the big players (IBM,HP,Sun) are jumping on the GPL bandwagon, isn't it clear that GPL is a license against innovation. It will only serve to protect them. What does the GPL Linux Kernel give you? It forces you have to basically give away all your innovation to them. What do the BSD kernel's give you? It allows you to innovate and compete. It allows for companies like Sun and Cisco to exist.
