All of us know that in many cases BSD do not concede technically
Linux. However is the fact. The quantity of the companies using
FreeBSD catastrophically decreases! In what a problem? As I see one of
popularization's problems - there is no information on innovations
(DTRACE, ccTCP, VIMAGE, HAST, SIFTR, Capsicum, LLVM, Grand Central
Dispatch )  -
yes, not one of it has not reached stability level.

BSDMAG + ISXsystem do good work, releasing BSD Magazine and PC BSD
assemblage. But people simply hear nothing now except Linux, Linux,
Linux. The New generation comes also a get on-default Linux. Thus, BSD
community decreases. It is a pity that many developers of FreeBSD have
left in Apple, the small part works over {NET,OPEN,DRAGONFLY}.BSD but
as a whole it already absolutely small small groups of people.
