Small and/or embedded system usually use Busybox for userland tools likeI use GNU/Linux for the whole system (as there are also things like Android/Linux) and just Linux for the kernel of course. For me, this makes sense. You don't have to agree.
find. No GNU stuff there. Should one call these Linux'es "Busybox/Linux"? Noone does that. I think the GNU guys are just a little pompous in that regard.
I certainly look into it. Thanks a lot for sharing the link. Web design is a black box for me.
Well said! I couldn’t agree more.I don't say FreeBSD communities should "welcome" any ridiculous crap. [...]I'm arguing the communities are great the way they are, as you won't find arrogance and [...]

Very well written. I was thinking about doing something similar, but I always end up with something which looks like an ode written by a fanboy, which is embarrasing.
Let's just say, GNU is not in competition with FreeBSD, Linux is. It's quite possible use to both FreeBSD and Linux with or without GNU tools. They've been replaced multiple times (Android, for example, uses Bionic libc). They are getting comparatively less important with each passing year. At this point this is a just another compiler, just another libc and just another set of utilities. It's a commodity.As for this "GNU/Linux" thing again – I really don't get that, uhm, "GNU bashing"?
Something like that.Or is it because of this RMS guy?

FreeBSD never holds your hand (if you don’t count the excellent documentation). There’s no automatic configuration. The defaults mostly match a server workload; if you want to use it on a desktop, you have a lot of manual work to do and of course install many packages.
radeonkmsdriver on my very old AMD "APU". Screen not found ("Cannot find any crtc or sizes"), and therefore, no display any more after loading the driver. Had this problem on 12.x already, but could work around it by building and using
hw.radeonkms.hw_i2c=1. Ironically, this leads to the following message in dmesg:
[drm] hw_i2c forced on, you may experience display detection problems!
