Near 2 years old. Most readers of PD src OSs know a .0 release is
adventurous (though page author didnt mention that). Most readers long
since would know to search for newer FreeBSDs, &
probably see 9.0 was dropped 2013-03-31, 8.5 month back.

Only Request not Demand, else you'll fail, annoy yourself & provoke strife.

No! It's just some guy who tried another UX,
who ran out of time before he learned all the differences.
Better not divert to create & maintain a growing set
of correctons to ever more ancient non freebsd.org blogs.

It is not obvious he deliberately got things wrong IMO,
(When I last tried Linux for interest, I'm sure I got things wrong).

Wrong law. Slander is spoken, Libel is written.
> retract erroneous news reports, Blogs are also obligated to publish
> corrective measures taken by the companies or organizations which they have
Forget law :
- Of near 200 sovereign global nations independent legal systems,
few might "obligate" web page corrections, & fewer enforce it,
& only then if You pay a lawyer.
- If something is not a page claiming to be a maintained current
comparison, but merely a Blog (= b[.+]log ?) Log of experiences at Date,
(as that page does) I see no obligation to waste time updating it.
- Don't "Demand" a fix, Offer author a friendly short update ready
to drop in, with href= to wherever your research with
http://www.freebsd.org/send-pr.html shows fixes were made.
- Target MS for strife, not a BSD or a Linux.
