Yeah, but it's not stealing if you cite the copyright
with BSD code.

Doesn't bother me that they use it. What bothers me is
they use all kinds of BSD code, and then have the nuts
to turn around and bash Unix.

BTW, SuSE also uses the OpenBSD ssh client and daemon
(who wouldn't?). And NetBSD uses the SuSE Linux
libraries for emulation. Kind of nice. If you MUST use
Linux, use SuSE...
