Subject:   Linux and BSDs are about freedom
Date:   2002-09-25 08:11:38

While OS X is indeed a nice GUI to a *nix core, you are still getting vendor lock-in which is no better than running windows, AIX, Solaris, etc. At least with the BSD's and Linux, you have your choice of which hardware you want to run it on. I would rather work with this community and be free than get something that "works" right now and be locked-in.
