[20041126] Musing about BSD history
Philosophing a bit about the history of the various BSD derivates, I tried making an image for better understanding, and from that picture it seems BSD isn't much better than Linux, with bazillions of splits and forks, and new versions here and dead old versions there. Looking closer, it seems that only some of the BSD projects can't manage their own userbase and developers, forcing to fork again and again though, while others provide a stable platform that's fit everyone's need with (almost *cough*) no need for forking. Go figure!
