    the ballad of FreeBSD:

    the *BSD truck is stuck in the mud and spinning its wheels since '93. One day a tow truck shows up and notices the hood left wide open, so the tow truck copies the engine while giving an empty promise to return and help the situtation.

    The tow trucks own [proprietary] version
    of the engine recieves fresh code and new featuresets, taking advantage of the prediciment it came across. Tragically, while many have done the same - *BSD is still there, spinning its wheels... praying for donations or code resubmission to this very day.

    FreeBSD is certainly Free. Free as in Stolen

        i'm mainly disappointed, disappointed someone would want to spend time and effort on writing free software in a such a way that mainly benefits those who don't contribute back
        the main reason someone would pick software with a bsd license is if they intended to incorporate it into a proprietary codebase
        while i understand that in theory it's more free because it allows this, in practice it's not helping free software as much as the gpl is

        • 3 weeks ago

          I doubt it makes any difference at all in the long run.
          how many people violate the gpl? There's only like one entity that goes after people but they do jack shit. There's also nothing stopping corporations from looking at how things are done in an open source program and doing it in a slightly different way. Hell you could copy the important code almost 1:1 and it would be hard to prove they stole from you in court.
          The only reason any notable company uses bsd over linux is because of the license, and companies like netflix do actually contribute back to the codebase.

          • 3 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            it does make a difference. I think Linux is pretty shit overall but there's absolutely no denying that it is much more alive than everything else in huge part due to the license. tons and tons of corporations tried "forking" it and just never upstreaming stuff but that only gets you so far, and they usually contribute at least some code back when they can't make it work otherwise. in general, there's been a trend of going upstream first which is also in part due to the license

            BSD license on the other hand just pushes you to fork, never upstream, take contributions and just fix anything in the kernel with no issues. For example Netflix contributed to freebsd completely out of goodwill because of that single nice dude who wanted to contribute back. otherwise, they could've just never done it with 0 penality in terms of updates, and almost 0 penalties in terms of maintain stuff.

            yes I know about the lawsuits that handicapped BSD early on but that's literally cope.

            I don't even care that much about OSS anymore but there's just 0 doubt in my mind that BSD is only fine for smaller stuff, or to open source stuff you did at work.

          • 3 weeks ago
            Anonymous

            I don't think it's cope. The only reason they even have the current license is because there's no reason to use bsd if they ever adopt the gpl. I mean think about it, who would choose bsd over linux if they're both gpl? Linux is the superior choice like 10/10 times. The only reason anybody gives a shit about freebsd in 2024 is because they can use the code without sharing it. That's the only reason any company will ever touch, donate, or contribute to freebsd. With linux they would be forced to release their entire codebase. The playstation for example uses bsd, and sony would never release their console os like that for free.

          free software mostly benefits those who don't contribute back. for example, the linux kernel has 12000 contributors, but a nocoder who sells you non-trivial things for money uses it dozens of times a day without paying and noticing.

            i get that most people who use it don't contribute to it, that's not the issue
            and things like say, routers and phones use linux and profit from it, but because they use gpl software, any changes they made to it have to be made available, which does contribute back, the gplv3 also was explicitly designed to prevent "tivoization", which is the practice of putting gpl software onto hardware in such a way that the software can't be modified, which the gplv2 didn't provide protection for. after all, what good is free software on a device if you can't modify it?
