Not a big deal. Many people here see BSDs as superior to Linux
in some parts. Alpine, as you see, has minimal amount of GNU
components (GCC and make, though I suppose the latter will be replaced
one day with NetBSD's bmake). I use a shell from MirBSD (mksh),
vi from BSD's (nvi), count here also mandoc from OpenBSD.
