Comment: Re:This is why I like BSD (Score 2, Insightful) 591

by D. J. Bernstein (#11866001) Attached to: OSS Unix: Dividing & Conquering Itself
BSD insists on putting ``ports'' under /usr/local, while Linux insists on not using /usr/local for anything that comes with the system. Both approaches produce failures for the users: programs not starting, for example. More importantly, the lack of cross-platform compatibility imposes tremendous costs on the UNIX community.
