FreeBSD popularity will be affected if the big cats (ie. networking
companies) continue to ""not contribute"" back the
enhancements/modifications to the kernel, networking stack,
optimizations etc etc !
Gentoo userland and emerge tools are easier and elegant though not
certainly superior to FreeBSD make mechanism.
This is based on my personal experience as i heavily use Gentoo Linux
and FreeBSD on older hardware.
And offcourse, i can easily emerge pine 4.64 on Gentoo but there is no
way i can do it on FreeBSD.
Does anybody know where FreeBSD (in particular) (NetBSD and OpenBSD)
is headed ? What is the road map ?
Please don't tell me that *BSD is a nice community project (which it
is) and the charter is to flip burgers (i mean code) for the next
networking company to take the code and run away !
i'm very hopeful that somebody will share some insight on the road map.
