We have a case in point in #Apple's (#Next at the time) use of #BSD (aside from #CUPS very little made it back into the open) vs #Microsoft's #Linux use (they're a rather significant contributor these days).

GPL also give people the freedom to not contribute their improvements back (upstream). It's just usually easier to in the long term.

It's a double edged sword.

#BSD gives the users the most freedom. Including that of not contributing their improvements back, thus ironically making the code less free.

As an individual or small enterprise, you would usually prefer to release under #GPL to avoid a situation where say Google or a bigger competitor take your code and run away with it.

Good to know.

So if I understand correctly, #bsd license gives you more freedom because you can keep the code to yourself, use for profitable purposes (a very important point, if you are going to invest time into a project) without having to release all the code.

I am really liking #lisp and finding out that it has a very close connection with all things #gnu.

Would be interesting to find out how the #bsd people feel about #lisp
#GNU #bsd #lisp


I'm interested in understanding the philosophical difference between the #gnu approach to free software compared to the #bsd #openbsd approach.

I'm really getting into #lisp and all the GNU things that go with it (#emacs, common lisp, guile, GNU Guix and more).

Does #openBSD have a similar free software philosophy and culture or are there significant differences?


Any news about #HyperbolaBSD?


One year ago (more or less) the Hyperbola project announce to rebase their distro over a blend of BSD implementation. A ambitious project but totally worth, however after that announce haven't followed any other updates so far...

Does any of you know if they are still working and moving forward on this project?

This project is extremely interesting and a has great potential to be a real thing and a breaking paradigm!

Some links for who missed the entire history...

2.5 Admins


I have to admit that 2.5 admins is very funny and extremely interesting, but never boring. The parts that I like the most is when Jim and Allan compare BSD and Linux, the former is always a professional tool while the latter is unavoidably a toy; Windows? Just a god punishment... 😆
