FreeBSD Some people already submitted this news last week, but it wasn't until today that it became official: the FreeBSD team has announced the release of FreeBSD version 9.0. As you may expect from the major version number change, this is releas eis packed with new stuff.

GCC by itself not so much, binaries produced by GCC are not GPLv3 by virality, but everything -using- a GPLv3 or any "TiVo clause"-ized code on the FINAL device most allow the firmware to be tinkered with. So it is not much GCC by itself, but everything around it that make it much more complicated. That said, I have seen OpenBSD on embedded devices, but never FreeBSD. Most of them just use Linux.

Do Juniper Routers and Switches ( and the recent SSG series Firewalls ) count as embedded devices? Junos is based on the FreeBSD kernel.
