I would disagree with that. Is not unification we need, it is unity.
Instead of speaking about the [Net, Open, Free, DragonFly]BSD
community, we should be talking about the BSD community as a whole.
I'm using Free, but when Open asks vendors to give driver docs, and
when Net is spiralling down, it should be a problem for all the BSDs.
Like bsdstats.org is considering, they are all bsd.
