FreeBSD On Tuesday, code-analysis software maker Coverity announced that its automated bug finding tool had analyzed the community-built operating system FreeBSD and flagged 306 potential software flaws, or about one issue for every 4,000 lines of code.

no, the real issue is quality software. take your political ideology to an appropriate forum, not the comments on an article about a code analysis of FreeBSD.

That's just it isn't it? GPL people think that the BSD isn't free because it doesn't give them free stuff and BSD people don't think the GPL is free because it forces them to give away their stuff.
