PC-BSD "iXsystems, an enterprise-class hardware solution provider, announced today its acquisition of PC-BSD, a rock solid UNIX operating system based on FreeBSD. PC-BSD is a fully functional desktop operating system running FreeBSD version 6, with a KDE desktop interface and graphical system installer. Its PBI system, developed exclusively for PC-BSD, lets users download and install their applications in a self-extracting and installing format. iXsystems' acquisition of PC-BSD will provide funding to the PC-BSD project to increase distribution of PC-BSD and develop future versions of PC-BSD. Development is currently underway for a version of PC-BSD that will allow for easy installation and operation on servers, workstations, and laptops."

Freedom isn't someones flavour of freedom, like the GPL. Freedom is real and without any drawback! If you want to guarantee freedom you have to do it with a proper attitude and the right facts. Some philosopher, people who real care about what is freedom, wouldn't define it that easily - because they know, it's always a two edged blade.
So it's "freedom" according to Stallman, the FSF, whatever - and I admire their fight against bad companies, but it's only their flavour - nothing more. Theo de Raadt (OpenBSD) for example has some other flavour of freedom to offer. So it's the brain to use, not some religion ...
