Topic: make a general bsd forum

I think a general bsd forum should be made

For example, Linux had at least two completely independent USB stacks before Linus Torvalds rejected them both and wrote a third one from scratch, after he found both existent Linux  stacks unsatisfactory.  (When pressed for an explanation as to why he selected the API he did, Torvalds stated: "because I wanted to."

hmm "which bsd is good to learn" doesn't sound off-topic to me, but then I also don't think we should create another forum now. If the number of general BSD posts increase, we'll add it.

Re: make a general bsd forum
