no one would argue that, despite how much code sun may have borrowed
microsoft's tcp/ip stack is from bsd. . .maybe they *are* a bsd. . .
->I have a laptop that uses BSD utilities on a Mach Kernel.
->That doesn't make MacOS a BSD.
it is part of the bsd family, or more accurately, a derivative from the
not sure of your point. the reality today is that mac osx users who
want to get into the heart of their system want to know bsd. that seems
a reason to open the door to them.
->I forwarded your message to nysa.org and you should forward
->it to unigroup (both NY Unix groups (whos boards I used to be on).
not to be factious, for spreading the word or to reprimand us?
i find the message a bit unclear. . .
