The future of FreeBSD at Yahoo!

The press in Germania is full of some statements, that Google is about 
to overtake Yahoo!. As far as I know, Yahoo! is one of the more popular 
and bigger, if not the biggest and last stronghold of a FreeBSD driven 
infrastructure. Despite the fact that even Google funded lots of coding 
for FreeBSD, I had the impression that Yahoo! might be one of the 
biggest contributor. And not to mention the psychological effect of 
hearing that such a company is utilizing a project like FreeBSD for 
potential newcomers in the business.

So, what is about the future of FreeBSD? Does FreeBSD have a site where 
all the goods that has been first invented by the FreeBSD/BSD folks or 
all the things that are thought about to come in future are 
shown/listed? Crawling the mailing lists is a really nasty work.

Thanks for having patience,
