Default NOT another Linux vs BSD thread

Hi, guys and girls

I'm NOT going to start a new thread about comparing Linux and BSD as I wrote in the title, but instead I would like to ask you a few questions about your opinion.

/* Just to point out first, I'm a BSD user and I'm proud of it! */

So here are the questions...

1. Why do you think Linux got so much popularity?

And by that I mean thing like that - why do not most of the manufactures/vendors do not provide drivers for their hardware for BSD also, most of them concentrate on Linux (excluding Nvidia for example and ATI which I hope will make us happy with an open source driver soon)

2. Why does not Adobe make our lives a bit easier and give us a native Flash player, instead of running it under Linux emulation?

3. Most of the Linux guys which I had a discussion with haven't even heard of BSD - isn't this a constricted outlook?

4. And why the heck I'm even talking about Linux, when I have a real UNIX?

"I never think of the future. It comes soon enough." - A.E
