Thank Apple for FreeBSD
Kelly McNeill writes "One of the most popular, yet grossly overstated comments made about the BSD operating system is that it is dying. While hardly true, Linux's rapid growth didn't help the misperception and it certainly stole a great deal of the spotlight the OS managed to secure for itself. It couldn't be more ironic that the one company which had more death proclamations than even BSD put it back in the spotlight. Rozz Williams submitted the following editorial to osViews which discusses Apple's role in giving BSD its new energy."
