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.

It was more or less "Cease and Desist" right off the bat.

It was 'rename your unofficial version of Firefox to something else', exactly what Google tell people who would try to distribute unofficial versions under the Chrome trademark.

The reason they enforce this should be obvious.


Likewise, Mozilla's cavalier treatment of the very reasonable objections of the Firebird Database devs, whose project name Mozilla stole, left something to be desired.

Of this I know nothing.


And then there is the continued treatment of non-Windows OSes as 2nd class citizens.

Are you claiming Chrome (which you endorsed) was treating Linux as a 1st class citizen? How long did it take for them to even get a Linux port out? Even longer to get it up to par with the Windows version.

I think you are mistaking that for some sort of vendetta.

I remember you well from all the vitriol you've spread here on OSNews over the years, and seeing you back from your hiatus the first post I see is one where you're back to your usual FSF hate fest, picking up right where you left off. So yes, I think you are nurturing the same old 'vendetta' of which we've seen countless examples of in the past. Unfortunately.


I am, however, perceiving that you harbor some sort of vendetta against me, personally.

I don't know you personally.
