They both aim at exactly the same market, but different personalities.
While sendmail.org aims at the more technical people, usually the ones
that will actually run the software, sendmail.com aims for the
directors, the ones that make the decision to run it.
Our current freebsd.org website is perfect for the first category, but
believe me, it scares the shit out of the higher management kind of
people. Argue all you want that people like that should not be allowed
to make such decisions, I've seen it happen and Im sure it happens all
So far, I have not seen one single valid argument against a
freebsd.com website or a new logo, so I side with the people that
wants some changes to happen in this one.
