FreeBSD Astute readers probably already saw this one waiting in our backend, but since there was no official announcement yet, I decided to wait. Now that it's officially here, let's rejoice: the FreeBSD team has released version 8.0 of their operating system, packed with new features and improvements.

Guy's... it's always the same argument between Linux and BSD. This has been going on since the turn of the century (feels like)... even the words are still the same.

Question: When will this end?

Why can't we just choose the operating system of our choice... live and let live, and stop putting the other down!

Well, this is some kind of a problem. Because there are many users, who don't like news about "free" operating systems other than Linux. And even within the Linux community they fight each other if they don't have anything to say about this very evil empire in Redmond.

But that *is* what we're actually doing, isn't it?

[...] and stop putting the other down!

I agree with that, but still, there are individual opinions that form criticism about some particular OS. It's worth discussing them, because they can lead to improvements in this OS. An example is the rewrite of FreeBSD's USB subsystem.

No... you are not! You are grumbling amongst one another without asking yourselves why??? It's the same old crap between Linux and BSD - get over it and keep progressing. It's OPENSOURCE advancing in ways it never has before, not whose making the better opensource.
Whether we know it or not - "We have to get there together".
