"Hubbard said that the FreeBSD project was lucky to just have a 486 connected to the net when they began.

"Compared to our humble beginnings, we're still doing very well and I also expect any gaps in our engineering efforts created by Wind River's decision to be quickly filled by other volunteers," Hubbard said. "We reached what I'd call 'critical mass' over two years ago and it's going to take a lot more than this to significantly set us back."

According to Wind River: "Wind River plans to ensure continuation of the altruistic, open stewardship of the FreeBSD trademark. We feel strongly that the FreeBSD project must be protected and encouraged and that a FreeBSD trademark in the wrong hands could be very detrimental. We continue to search for the best solution. No specific third-party has yet been determined, but transfer to a suitable third-party is the leading option being considered."
