not everyone here has english for mother language, so, before going for 
grammar, id rather keep in mind what this discussion was started with.

just had to drop in.

you guys make a holy war out of a logo contest, then youre better than me.

and for a personal thing of mine, would you please leave terms like "decision 
makers" out of here, i just have the certain feeling that youre referring to 
the manager type of person, who does not ever go to a serverroom or really 
look at anything important anyways.

of course thats my subjective perspective, you might enlighten me on that one 
if you got some examples of "decision makers" who actually got an idea about 
how the world is really turning around.

was that really the question or are that facts, i mean, does FreeBSD really 
want to compete with companies, or do their own thing.

what was it from what ive read... freebsd core dev team is around ~200 
peoples working on the code?

how about giving them a chance to speak up their thoughts for a change?
