Seriously anyone here claiming that watching a movie or TV show on your mobile device is better than a good sized TV screen with quality audio is insane.
Seriously you're asking why one is different from the other? Someone who hasn't been vaccinated and has a good immune system who gets infected with certain viruses still has a fighting chance. Someone with a weakened immune system has no chance if they got infected with said viruses, let alone the weakened variants that are in vaccines.
That's why people are sympathetic to one side and critical to the other. The growing amount of unvaccinated kids are causing outbreaks and while they may have a chance of surviving, it's a death setence to a very small minority who depend on everyone else to not carry these viruses.
Look kids. Get over the small minded philosophical hangups. Understand that the MacBook OS is a BSD kernel + the GNU OS (tool chain) + Plus the NSstuff that Next brought. That's it. The vast majority of code is already open, because it has been developed by the community over 30 years.
the XNU kernel is an evolved version of the XNU kernel from NextSTEP that uses some BSD components, CMU Mach microkernel components and C++ I/O Kit which replaced NextSTEP's ObjC DriverKit. It's not a "BSD kernel" per say. the toolchain is definitely not GNU at all. LibSystem uses no GNU code at all. It uses the BSD standard library libc, not glibc. clang is the compiler, not gcc as that's something they got rid of many years ago. They do still use some software preinstalled that are under GPL but it's no "toolchain". See Apple’s great GPL purge.
A number of important components are completely closed which are needed to boot XNU on its own, like PlatformExpert. So you're not exactly correct in your statement here.
Can anyone explains why *BSD matters? It sucks. Nobody uses it. Linux is better for servers, has better hardware support, has more software, and is far better supported. Why would anyone care about any BSD system? It sure looks like *BSD is dead.
Here's a list of products that use FreeBSD or modified versions of FreeBSD:
Here's why Netflix uses FreeBSD:
FreeBSD was selected for its balance of stability and features, a strong development community and staff expertise. All code improvements, feature additions, and bug fixes are contributed directly back to the open source community via the FreeBSD committers on our team. We also strive to stay at the front of the FreeBSD development process, allowing us to have a tight feedback loop with other community and partner developers. The result has been a positive open source ecosystem that lowers our development costs and multiplies the effectiveness of our efforts.
Regardless of the FreeBSD is dead meme, it's very much actively used and companies that use it contribute to its code. NetBSD, however, is a completely different thing altogether when it comes to people using it.
