To anonymous FreeBSD user.
Due to its licence, FreeBSD cannot become an enterprise platform
from the vendor's perspective. They all fear heavy proprietisation
and forking of any non-GPL codebase.
The only OS that can fly to where the Open Source world wants it to
fly is Linux, FreeBSD is now 5+ years behind in terms of enterprise
readiness. Please keep up with the times and avoid this whole OS
pissing contest thing.
Remember, we're not talking single-CPU internet servers anymore.
FreeBSD cannot scale to 64 CPUs nor does it have the hardware support
necessary to breach the enterprise space.
