FreeBSD Journal

The FreeBSD Journal looks interesting and I might subscribe to it even though I don’t use FreeBSD. There is just one, but important, problem: It can be read only on Android and iOS devices using a DRM equipped proprietary application available from the official Kindle, iOS and Google Android stores.

What’s the message? For first, FreeBSD leaders consider their users as immature beings involved in excessive illegal copying. For second, the ridiculous fact that FreeBSD Journal can’t be read on FreeBSD systems tells something about proprietary mentality and the value of user freedom in the FreeBSD community.

Well, I should probably waste\^Wspend my time and money on something else than FreeBSD.
