You have definitely blogged an interesting piece! I hardly think that
Dag's coherent rebuttal regarding a few points he disagrees with and a
readers mail to advocacy@, while digesting your article, demonstrate how
aggressive FreeBSD developers can be, as you state in that post.
It seems more like legitimate debate going on to me ;-)
FYI, the FreeBSD Foundation has not yet signed off on the Flash
re-distribution agreement with Adobe and there is no guarantee that they
will. While I don't see any strong reasons why it shouldn't be signed,
installing Flash on FreeBSD is painless and there might not be a great
deal of reasons to change the way the system currently works.
