Journal Journal: BSD and Linux

I really got a laugh out of this anonymous post today.

---------------------------------------

Linux: Patches accepted based on what Linus thinks is good
BSD: Patches accepted based on what will run on the MrCoffee port

Linux: Patches to support new hardware added quickly
BSD: That better be an ISA network card...

Linux: VM changes cause instability in "stable" kernel branch
BSD: VM is old and slow, but you can use punchcards as swap. Isn't that neat?

Linux: It's for people who like to tinker
BSD: It's for people who think Debian-stable is too bleeding edge
