Why is there such a huge circle jerk for Linux and no love for BSD?
>>
Because bsd is not such a clusterfuck
>>
>>52454010
Literally no software supports bsd, companies don't even consider making a bsd port for their software

BSD takes real skill and intelligence.

Linux is hipster/poser tier trash, which is why NEETS here can manage it.

Why?

Do you want the truth? BSD is better in everything but there are no 'distributions' that install a DE out of the box so the learning curve is just a little steeper and people stick to linux.

Do you suck dicks?

>>52454120
Well there's GhostBSD and PCBSD but no one has really heard of either.
>>
What's so good about BSD anyway?
>>
>>52454035
This. Compatible software is the essence of an OS (and unfortunately the number one reason for windows' success)
>>
BSD has no games

I've been considering BSD, but seeing how Wayland is still a pipe dream even for PC-BSD...

yes but the same can be said about loonix
>>
>>52454680
it's actually true about bsd though.

>>52454642
FreeBSD and NetBSD can run linux binaries. OpenBSD has a compatibility layer but only on i386 apparently

BSD has no games no drivers and no compatibility.

Anyone telling you otherwise is lying.
>>
As far as hardware support the BSDs have the same sorts of problems as linux but somewhat worse.

On the Linux kernel there's enough incentive there to make large companies come forward and release specifications to the kernel devs(often under an NDA) so that those devs can reverse and re-implement those specs.

The BSDs don't have that kind of popularity so they usually just reverse and re-implement stuff taken from linux instead. This has given them a pretty vast amount of software and hardware support but they're still lacking in the same places that linux itself is lacking(ie graphics and wifi and things that depend on those). Though FreeBSD has proprietary drivers which are directly supported by Nvidia which is nice. The open source intel and radeon drivers are supported on pretty much all of the BSDs though.

Wow, I always knew you were a faggot but I didn't think you were that much of a faggot

Because the difference between support for Linux and BSD is greater than Windows and Linux.

Linux is usable at desktop as long as your profession allows it to be .

BSD is not

OpenBSD's is shitty though.
Can't even run Flash.
>>
>>52455439
There are some caveats with the linux compatibility layer(s). They obviously wouldn't be able to run stuff that explicitly depends on the linux kernel itself. On FreeBSD the layer is based on fedora linux so it may have some trouble with debian specific software which may use a slightly different file structure.

>>52454010
Because *BSD is a hobby, name a big company under bsd?
Why not linux?

>>
I heard that If you don't have ECC ram your files can get fucked up

Is this true?
>>
>>52454035
This only describes the symptom. The disease is the license one finds on BSD. It allows for companies to exploit it and give nothing back, "but at least BSD will be used hurr durr".
>>
BSD has no copyleft and thus allowed the abomination called OSX to appear.
>>
the PS3 and PS4 gameos are freebsd.
>>
>>52455668
OS X would be better if they used more BSD code.

Most of its problems come when they try to do their own thing like HFS+

because bsd is for cucks.

pretty sure our lord and saviour rms explains this

>>52455680
>PS4 gaems run on x86 FreeBSD
Yes but they're curently impossible to unpackage so that they can be hacked to run on a regular FreeBSD PC with AMD card

They are called Apple fanbois. Deal with it, Apple Mac OS X is the most well known version of BSD. Just like Android is the most well known version of Linux.

>OS X would be better if they used more BSD code.
Since they're more similar to each other than BSD is to Linux, wouldn't it make more sense for BSD devs to develop for BSD and OSX at the same time than to develop for each one seperately? There must be at least a little bit of shared development time, right?
>>
Is Apple software compatible with BSD? And if not, why not? Shouldn't Apple at least give something back to the OS they base their OS on?

OSX is not based on BSD it's based on NeXT. They use utilities from the FreeBSD userland that's where the similarities end.

>>52454010
Because most of the people who actually circlejerk about GNU/Linux are just hipsters trying to look cool and edgy on the internet, GNU/Linux is a very accessible platform to do this.

>>52454035
Then build it from source you dumb fucking nigger, and if you can't, then why the fuck aren't you using OS X instead which has far better proprietary AND free software support than GNU/Linux ever will?
>>
>>52457042
No, it's an entirely different operating system derived from NeXTSTEP/OPENSTEP, an operating system that was originally built on 4.3BSD as a base and using the Mach kernel.
>>
>>52457040
There is, and, despite what the freetards on /g/ says, companies like apple, sony et al actually do contribute upstream, simply because that leaves them with less code they have to pay engineers to maintain for them.
>>
>>52457042
>Shouldn't Apple at least give something back to the OS they base their OS on?
Why would they? Apple invented BSD.
>>
>>52454816
this, linux is still trash as desktop gaymen os but it's ok if you don't care about running all the games and inferior gpu drivers. BSD is a turd and only turbospergs use it as a daily driver

Apple did invent the "Berkeley App Distribution" better known as BAD.

It's just a small part of Android afaik, so it's not actually, it's like saying you use Linux because the pages you browse are hosted in Linux-powered servers
