That's hilarious really. To mention that the internet was developed
long before this on BSD systems probably isn't necessary. It also
shouldn't be necessary for anyone who has followed the internet to
mention Bill Gates' famous 1994 speech where he said that the internet
was a play thing for researchers and academics and that Windows would
never need to support TCP/IP. Next year (after someone obviously had a
word in his ear) he basically said that Microsoft had just invented
TCP/IP. Maybe this is where your confusion is coming from.

And in the end I doubt that FreeBSD core team will be responsible for
the end of the world lol. It's going a long way past reasonableness,
and to answer it adequately would require a flame. Thus this will be
my last post on this thread.
