I really like ppl thinking, that someone will create/develop/maitain an OS
just for them. There are hundreds of chocices: OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD, +
forks, Windoze, hundreds (and growing) of different linux distros, Solaris,
Minix, vxworks, even MSDOS :)
Feel free to choose. If there will be one suitable OS for every existing
task, there will be no need for tge rest.
Come on. Do you really thing that a group of ppl coding in free time to
create an OS to primary fullfill their needs and really liking what they are
doing, because it's their hobby, would stop because one starts to rant?
It's like I would criticize... lemme think ... Justin Bieber writing him:
"Hey lady, ... ehm, beg me pardon, man... d'oh ...child.
I don't like your music, please find another style and your CD booklets
sucksalot, do something or I will stop listening to you and start buy
Ke$ha's CDs"
Who cares? There are milions that listen to Justin regardless of my opinion,
because they like her. :)
It's the same with FreeBSD. Not everyone likes the style, but really many
do. (and it's really usefull and great indeed, comparing it to JB was a
Nobody forces you to use FBSD.

I found NO constructive critics in your e-mail.
I personally use OpenBSD, FreeBSD and Linux, depending on my needs and I'm
really happy for the HUGE VALUE I'm getting FOR FREE. I would not pay a cent
for Windoze, having bugs either, crappy licences, viruses, horrible
documentation. Where's the real difference except the price?

So either post some relevant request/bugs/ideas or use something fullfilling
your needs.

Fun to read the thread anyway :)
