Without having listened to it yet, I’ll tell you one thing that really pisses me off about
this…  It’s like a flashback to the ‘oughts - Linux guys get a TON of advance notice 
- FreeBSD gets, what, a week or a few days?

In the old days I was also pissed about the *BSD red-headed stepchild treatment
by vendors, but with FreeBSD specifically and the Foundation being a legit entity
that can sign NDAs and the like, I don’t know what the excuse is today for not
giving FreeBSD (or other *BSDs) more advance notice.  Really disappointing.
