FreeBSD Not too long ago, Apple open sourced its Grand Central Dispatch library, which aids in developing multithreaded code. It was suggested that it could be ported to other platforms, and the FreeBSD team has done exactly that. They have also done a lot of work related to getting GCD to work in a POSIX environment.

Because FreeBSD make nothing worthwile of it's own accord ...

Geez, Moully. Your *BSD hatred is becoming (or actually, has long become) very tiresome. I usually just ignore you. But *please* stop slavering and frothing so. I happen to prefer Linux to *BSD for my particular use cases. As a user, I happen to prefer copyleft to more permissive licensing. But I'm glad that the *BSDs are there. And the *BSD guys are doing a great job for the folks they serve. You are an embarrassment to those of us who like Linux but respect authors and users of other OSes. You are an embarrassment to those of us who prefer copyleft, but respect authors who choose other licenses under which to release their works.

You have preferences, as most of us do. But you lack the *respect* for others that most of us learned in kindergarten. In fact, sometimes I feel that you got stuck in kindergarten and are forever posting from there.

Some might tell me to stop feeding the troll. But you are not a troll. I've known you too long to think that. You are simply overenthusiastic and tactless.

What _exactly_ was your problem again? You've been bitching about so many people and so many projects in a single thread that it just doesn't make any sense anymore.

So the *BSD crowd are thieves. Why is that? Because they cherry-pick as much public available code they like to port it to their project? Seriously, that's the idea? If it's available and they think it could be useful, it actually makes sense to make use of it, that's all.

It's just a bunch of code FFS, it's just text files containing intructions to be executed one after another by a CPU, wich happens to be unencumbered of license restrictions. My guess is that it was released that way on pourpose for others to integrate as they see fit, don't you think?

I think it’s about time you stopped Moulinneuf before we have to step in. This is off topic and you will never win.

Moulinneuf is my actual real name, not a coward like some ( namely you ), and as no Y in it ...

Just to degrade things, I might point out that Steve Bergman lists his (presumably) real name in his profile. Not that that's a particularly good thing to do on the net in the first place, or a reasonable demand to make on your part, but...
