OpenBSD OpenBSD has asked for donations: "To fulfill most development goals OpenBSD should be generating about $100K USD. With that amount of money the project can finance 1 large and 4 small hackathons per year. Pay the bills and a part-time developer to mind the shop when Theo isn't around. In an ideal world we would have a sponsor per hackathon and the CD sales would be paying for other expenses." On a very related note, pre-orders for OpenBSD 3.9 are now available.

It's a very blatant troll, to anyone following OpenBSD.

Just Google for OpenBSD + GPL ;-)

"It's a very blatant troll"

A troll is not someone who differ in opinion with you , the subject I discuss is still OpenBSD and its financing. I just proposed the honorable GPL way , intead of your already travelled Thievery , lying and traitoring way that obviously dont pay. Its a shame because its really good code that is made unusable by choice rather then thecnical merits.

"to anyone following OpenBSD."

There are any ? Why arent they all contributing financially to there own project ?

"Just Google for OpenBSD + GPL ;-)"

Why would learning about the failure of the BSD's protection clause be of any value in a discussion about financing a project in order for it to survive ?
