I agree with you that BSD was very important, I worked for an ISP and
we used to use a lot of software that only ran on BSD.

If you really want to discuss it. NeXT was BSD based, MacOS and IOS
for the Iphone are based on Darwin which is BSD based.

I would never deny the historical significance of BSD.

30 years is still a nice reminder though. A lot was done with Linux
and the history is important.

Fun fact, Linux Journal was released in 1994 and I got my first issue
and subscription at Trenton Computer Festival. I have the first 12
issues in a box somewhere.
