FreeBSD "Linux has a large amount of device drivers for hardware not supported on FreeBSD, especially USB devices. Not rarely, such drivers have been written based on information derived by protocol sniffing, reverse engineering and the like. This makes the code highly undocumented, and renders the porting effort extremely error prone. To help with this task, I decided to start working on an emulation layer that would let us recompile the linux source code on FreeBSD, and provide a sufficiently complete emulation of the kernel APIs so that device drivers (or at least certain classes) could be used without modifications to their source code."

You forgot one... Funny enough the one i used. I cant say i'm surpriced that you did'nt use that one in your post as it would prove your self wrong.

"Nothing ... someone as to introduce GPL code in something else or use it as its base for it to come into effect ... There is GPL coded software on Windows and Apple if it where viral Windows and Apple would be entirely GPL by now just by being in contact with it ... What can I say reality don't have much value in your fabulations and lies. "

It's funny how pimple faced kids who are affraid of bigger kids allways needs to insult others on the internet. Atleast you could find something real to say your bs about insted of just rewriting reality so it fits into your basementworld.
Just what would happend if i were to port a gpled driver to freebsd? Would the result be that the driver was bsdl'ed or would it be gpl'ed?

"That's one of them , lets just say he really hate the GPL and got special funding to attack it so he tried more then once on various subject. "

Well lets see something to back that statement up... Or is it just the usual bs from you?

"I ain't digging a hole at all. "

What do you call all your bs then? Getting deeper and deeper every post you write.

"Thats where your wrong ... But don't worry about me. "

I don't... All i'm worried about is that someone might actually believe your crap insted of looking into it...

"I don't make claim. "

Well you havent been able to suuport your claims with anything real yet...

"
Talk is cheap , lets see each other in court hamster , spin that wheelllllll ;-) "

I somehow doubt you old enough to go to court...

"Well they can prove me right by dual licensing it and see just how really wrong they are , but I don't hold my breath on that one. "

Your point being? I asked you what made you think they would switch go another licens when they like the one they use now... You as a linux pophead should be quite happy with it aswell. It's no as if linux havent enjoyed code under the bsdl.

"I dont know why , but laughing is not what I see them doing when they see my name , but I could be wrong on that , because for me BSD is all a big joke that goes nowhere."

They might have the same fear as i have.. that people actually believe your bs... If you atleast had something to back it up with you might be worth a minut but it doesnt seem to be the case... Your the notparker of the linux world... Only he could back atleast some of his talk up.

"You forgot one..."

Clearly I and Google disagree , feel free to show it to me I copy pasted 6 and google show 6 ...

"It's funny ... basementworld."

Hamster , please adress the point , insult dont affect me at all ...

"Just what would happend if i were to port a gpled driver to freebsd?"

Nothing as long as the driver stay GPl ... But we noth know you dont know how.

"Would the result be that the driver was bsdl'ed or would it be gpl'ed?"

GPL something that is GPL stay GPL. Its why BSD fail nothing stay BSD on the derivative.

"Well lets see something to back that statement up... Or is it just the usual bs from you?"

Just ask a lwayer to show you the court cases ...

"What do you call all your bs then?"

What you call BS is actually the truth ...

"Getting deeper and deeper every post you write."

Well if anyone is to believe you I have zero credibility , it does not make sense that I dig a hole then , I am in the hole , but then your just making up nonsense ...

" All i'm worried about is that someone might actually believe your crap"

I dont say crap ...

"Well you havent been able to suuport your claims with anything real yet.."

I dont make claim , I dont need to support them , they support themself on there own ...

"I somehow doubt you old enough to go to court..."

I guess thats another thing your wrong about.

"Your point being?"

Now we both know you dont get any point I make due to your lack of any sense at all.

"I asked you what made you think they would switch go another licens when they like the one they use now... "

To prove other wrong ... Like I said its highly unlikely.

"You as a linux pophead should be quite happy with it aswell. "

No , sorry I would prefer it be GPL , sorry to disapoint you again.

"It's no as if linux havent enjoyed code under the bsdl."

You keep making that point and I keep responding that GNU/Linux doesn't prevent BSD from using its improvment ... I also quite clearly explained that BSD get funding directly from GNU/Linux ...

"They might have the same fear as i have.."

I doubt that ...

". that people actually believe your bs.."

Well that would mean that I am actually undermining there businees in a financial way , but then again they have to prove I am wrong first ...

" If you atleast had something to back it up with you might be worth a minut but it doesnt seem to be the case..."

I got plenty to back it up , dont worry about me.

"Your the notparker of the linux world... "

No , but then your entire point is that I am.

"Only he could back atleast some of his talk up."

No ... thats the difference between him and me.

But dont let reality get in the way of your fabulation , now about that seventh definition I am waiting for it ...

"Clearly I and Google disagree , feel free to show it to me I copy pasted 6 and google show 6 ... "

As i allready said.. you forgot the one i have in a ealier post.

"Nothing as long as the driver stay GPl ... But we noth know you dont know how. "

And you claim other people avoid answering your points... you just c/p the parts you know you can answer and then go with that. And even that you arent all that good at...

"GPL something that is GPL stay GPL. Its why BSD fail nothing stay BSD on the derivative. "

Not only does it stay gpl it eats anything that is gpl compatible. hence the vira effect which you don't wanna see...

"Just ask a lwayer to show you the court cases ... "

And yet again you cant show anything.. It's quite easy to see your full of it.

"What you call BS is actually the truth ... "

It seems you wouldn't know what the truth is even if it jumped up and down infront of you out side your basement...

"Well if anyone is to believe you I have zero credibility , it does not make sense that I dig a hole then , I am in the hole , but then your just making up nonsense ... "

How do you expect to get credability when you cant back any of your statments up..

"I dont say crap ... "

Just what is it then? It surely isnt something from the real world. Now i'm sure you really wanna believe in what your saying but wake up and smell the coffe...

"No , sorry I would prefer it be GPL , sorry to disapoint you again. "

Aslong as you don't deliever code you don't have a say in the matter... And just how is the linux version of openssh licensed?

"You keep making that point and I keep responding that GNU/Linux doesn't prevent BSD from using its improvment ... I also quite clearly explained that BSD get funding directly from GNU/Linux ... "

Directly from linux..? Back that up would you..? Or can you i might ask. And don't come with that bs link again. Even you should be able to understand that just because one company that do linux consulting has given money to freebsd that doesnt meen that linux is getting funding from linux.

"I doubt that ... "

What makes you think anyone cares what you doubt?

"I got plenty to back it up , dont worry about me. "

But you just don't ever use it... You have yet to back anything up with something usefull...

"No , but then your entire point is that I am. "

It's pretty clear to anyone but your self that your no better them him.

"No ... thats the difference between him and me. "

There is no big difference beween the two of you... Besides he could back his statments up. And you cant...

"But dont let reality get in the way of your fabulation , now about that seventh definition I am waiting for it ..."

Just like the truth you wouldn't know what reality is outside your basement. You know the reality where none of your bs makes any sence.
