It's easy to create a FreeBSD distro but that doesn't mean it happens. Why should it be "easier than creating a linux distro"? The *main* reason for Linux distros was profit or not-for-profit.
Is that true? - I always thought it was about choice and forking (forking isn't always a bad thing). I mean, as a "disto consumer", I don't go looking for a Linux distro because I want to throw money at someone or not - I go looking based on the community around it, how well it works, what software it comes with, and whether it will meet my needs. Slackware vs. Ubuntu for example - night and day for many even if it's the same underlying OS/kernel. - Urias
