NetBSD Charles Hannum, co-founder of NetBSD posted to 3 major BSD lists saying that "The NetBSD Project has stagnated to the point of irrelevance. It has gotten to the point that being associated with the project is often more of a liability than an asset. I will attempt to explain how this happened, what the current state of affairs is, and what needs to be done to attempt to fix the situation."

Because each of the BSDs takes "a complete OS" and rewrites it to work on its own kernel. Also, on a superficial level (which is exactly where many of these disputes take place), the man pages often say things like "FreeBSD, OpenBSD, NetBSD Manual", not "BSD Manual".

No.


Yes! :-)

BSD != Linux.

That much is certain.

When will Linux fanboys realize that the Linux way is not the best way for everyone??

Linux fanboy or not, did my post indicate that I thought it was? No.

Whatever the case, your original assumption "each of the BSDs takes "a complete OS" and rewrites it to work on its own kernel" is still incorrect.
