all "you have to pay extra" components. It has ksh as it's "best shell",
rather than bash, "ps aux" doesn't work, stuff like that.
isn't linux more like SVR4 than BSD? Most of the header files aim
towards POSIX/SunOS5 compatibility rather than BSD. I know you
definitely can't compile BSD code that includes glibc <netinet/..>
files on linux. (there's a #define __BSD_SOURCE for compatibility
with BSD though).
Utilities seem to have taken the best of both worlds, thank god.
