First, khttpd for Linux is totally optional. You need to download it and
compile it into the kernel if you _want_ to use it.
Second, I don't like the idea personally, but I find it refreshing that at
least the choice is there for those who _do_ want to use it. Remember: "I
disagree with you, but I'd give my life to defend your right to disagree
with me". That's what freedom is all about.
Third, what's the deal with Linux in the FreeBSD lists? I run both
FreeBSD and Linux in several servers, and still have to understand this
fixation that many FreeBSD fans have with Linux. Sheesh. Open source is
open source is open source... and I certainly hope most of the users one
day run one or another form of open source no matter which one.
