helloSystem: Pre-alpha FreeBSD project chases simplicity and elegance by taking cues from macOS



NEXTStep, Mach microkernel and BSD userland. CUPS was never strictly Linux, nor was Webkit. Darwin, the underlying glue behind MacOS, is closer to FreeBSD than Linux, licensing being the motivation; it all depends on your definition of "free" as, for some of us - Cupertino included it would seem, having to release your mods as source isn't freedom at all.

Meh, whatevs, ancient history.

* Long-time *BSD user, jumped ship to De[bi|vu]an when the project became infested with divas.
