I does fail to see how a BSD/GNU based distribution is going to impact
the future of the Free Software movement. (Unless you by Free only means
GPL-based, and think that the BSD system is a loot better that Linux
based kernels). 

I fail fo see that more free software in any way does impose a threat to
any-one. No-one but that creator of the software may change it to be
none-free that the same for BSD as for GPL. The original code does not
disappes when someone does a new version. (I still have Debian
GNU/Linux, even thou Corell started there own version. In practice it
does not matter to me about there Licence at all, I STILL have and use
the original Deibai distribution...)
