No. The root cause is not the foundation. FreeBSD developers & traditional user-base refuse to integrateNot because of "FreeBSD didn't goose-stepped Linux". PR and marketing are alien to FreeBSD Foundation. That's the reason.
- a modern graphical installer for standard PC (currently x86-64, but that seems to change).
- there's a strong notion that FreeBSD is oriented towards server & not desktop.
- methods for automated configuration. pkg/ng does not include automagic configuration intentionally. The package managers on Linux have it.
- For these reasons, young nerds grow up with Linux, thus that's what they choose in their professional career.
