When ever I take a look at the BSD mailing lists, often see the term “BSD hacker” been used which is a huge irony.
The term hacker (before popular media used it for something else) is to describe a people how goes through lengths at trying to discover new ways to get more out of a piece of software or a piece engineering even to a extent in which it was not originally designed for. Hackers avoid reinventing the wheel and instead focus on discovering new things. This is in exact contrast BSD developers who consistently reinvent the wheel and stubbornly stick to outdating practices and technology even then it is causing them to fall behind. BSD developers thus are the extreme opposite of hackers.
