Theo de Raadt

I wonder where Theo the Raadt is, didn't hear any comment from him about this (Theo de Raadt is the lead developer of OpenBSD). The last thing I heard from him was that Linux was a shit, a complete mess and he didn't know how people continued to use it. He supposed just for ignorance.

I guess that those enterprises running nearly 400 of the top 500 supercomputers in the world are just a gang of ignorant people who don't even know that OpenBSD exists and that it's free too. They just play with their million $$ equipment with such a stupid OS as Linux, not knowing they could achieve real excellence using some form of BSD (yes, why FreeBSD with it's strong focus in performance and technical excellence doesn't show up either? And where are all those who claim say that ok, Linux is fast, but unstable compared to BSD's? Do they really think that these supercomputers crash a couple of times every week while performing their heavy and mission critical tasks?)

BSD's are great, really. But why BSD people always try to say that Linux is shit? They say that Linux people make Linux because they hate Windows (which can be true to some extent), while they make BSD because they love Unix. But are they sure it's not because they hate Linux? BSD guys, don't compare yourself with Linux. You can't ! But you can compare yourself with other Unix systems and even win (not to mention Windows)!
