IANAL, but I am the chairman of a 501(c)(3)
For what it's worth: Over the 2008-2012 window, the 2%-of-total-support cap on the amount of each donor's contribution which counts as "public" is currently at almost $40k; and there are five donors (Anonymous, NetApp, Hudson River Trading, iXsystems, and Google) which are currently above that limit. As a result, each new dollar donated by someone not on that list else counts as $1.10 towards the "public support" amount, since it increases by 5 x $0.02 the amount of "public support" from those five largest donors, in addition to the $1 itself counting as public support.
I feel that the OS has somewhat fallen behind the times, and fallen out of the limelight, so I'm glad to see some support for it still out there.
It's not the most popular OS in the world but it sure is a nice one. Everything I've ever used it for worked great once I got it dialed in.
The whole thread reeks of trolls and teenage-conspiracy-loving gullibility.
Thanks for the laugh.
'cause he thinks FreeBSD is a turd, too.
Unlike FreeBSD which is targeting servers (much like Linux), Haiku is designed for personal computing and emphasizes responsiveness and ease of use.
FreeBSD isn't just targeting servers. There's also a lot of work happening on embedded systems, and one of the larger projects the FreeBSD Foundation funded recently was strictly desktop-oriented -- providing support for Intel graphics chipsets.
