It's a real pity that FreeBSD and the BSDs in general don't get more love from Slashdot. Linux seems to have stolen the thunder from the BSD camp, but in all honesty, FreeBSD rocks.

In general, I think the BSDs are better written pieces of software.

Eradicating blatant sexism is.

Whatever it is these countries make that we need, we should end our reliance on their exports and let these misguided ideologies implode. Sometimes things have to get worse before they can get better.
There is nothing in Bangladesh that the West is dependent on. Yeah, you do sometimes see clothing that's 'Made in Bangladesh', but that's available from all sorts of countries - Honduras, Vietnam, Costa Rica, et al. So avoid buying anything made in Bangladesh, and buy something made in one of the other countries. Bangladesh ain't China, which you can't avoid buying from
