What's about DTrace?

= Development/System Profiling =
  * DTrace: Some notes of the Kernel Gurus what this could mean for 
performance profiling and development

= Licensing Model =
  * Some striking comments on the advantage for companies or interested 
people of the BSD-like licensing model over the GPLv3 on which Linux is 
based now and which has serious implications for those who wants to 
develop and sell software developed on/with GNU stuff. it would be very 
honest, if we do not only emphasize only the pros. BSD came from the 
academic environment, that was where I met it the first time and I 
appreciated the way things were developed and 'sloppyness' was a nogo. 
So we should keep it up and a serious and honest set of contraru points 
for all compared OS should be appreciable.

Does the VM of FreeBSD still have advantges (measurable) over Linux?
