PC-BSD "With all of the BSD variants available for download, it's easy to incorrectly assume all of them are pure, incompatible forks from each other. Actually, there are more shades of BSD out in the world than just separate forks. One in particular made the news a couple of weeks ago when it was commercially acquired. The BSD in question is PC-BSD. The company that bought it is iXsystems, a systems deployment and integrator firm out of San Jose that has pretty strong experience implementing *BSD, Unix and Linux systems for its customer base. So, why did the company up and buy PC-BSD?"

This is what i think has made a difference between PC-BSD and other projects. Our forum has been very, very friendly so far. People help each other despite of differences in knowlege.

In other projects i have seen elitist behavior that is not on PC-BSD. Not to say some of us dont have their bad days.

I am one of the people translating pc-bsd (as well as DesktopBSD) and i truely belive we can do very well if current philosophy remains unchanged.

Cheers,

RF
