Pedant fail. The basis for OS X was NeXTSTEP, and the basis for NeXTSTEP was BSD.

BSD what...4.2? 4.3? Far before FreeBSD.

What the fuck is wrong with you people?

Have you considered switching to fucking decaf? Then you might notice that operating systems are more than just a kernel.

No shit! But that doesn't change that using a modicrum of FreeBSD code in your utilities doesn't make your OS a "fork" of FreeBSD.
Y'all used to know better, now you don't.

BSD ain't dying -but I sure can't say the same for Slashdot...

+ - Privacy is an new-fangled concept, says Google's Vint Cerf, and "unustainable"->

Google's chief internet evangelist, Vint Cerf, suggests that privacy is a fairly new development that may not be sustainable. "Privacy may actually be an anomaly," Cerf said at an FTC event yesterday while taking questions. Elaborating, he explained that privacy wasn't even guaranteed a few decades ago: he used to live in a small town without home phones where the postmaster saw who everyone was getting mail from. "In a town of 3,000 people there is no privacy. Everybody knows what everybody is doing."

This is, of course, ignoring the fact that people left the small towns for a reason -and that it was a federal crime for your local letter carrier to be snooping through your mail to begin with."
