-Our way of doing things is right (well, this is very commonsense, because
of course you think that FreeBS at least has some things right, or else
you wouldn't be working on the project vulentarily. But it should also say
something about your little "distance" you make to the way for example
GNU/Linux does things. "The BSDL is true free software", "We love Unix,
we don't hate Windows" and so on)


I would not say that "our way of doing things is right" is typical for FreeBSD, or BSD in general for that matter.
Being a person that works with Windows and Linux but runs to BSD when given freedom to do so, I must say that BSD has the by far most "tolerant" user base. I frequently hear BSD users say things like "look at that project, their way of solving this is way better then ours" or "I wish BSD was as good as OtherOS on this" or similar. I think the ability to admit weakness is one of the strenghts of the BSD community. If we can face the fact that others do things better, we can also improve the way we do things. To rephrase, I would like to put it something like "Lets try to do things the right way", be it our way or someone elses.


I must say that the "true free software" and "we love UNIX, we don't hate windows" quotes are very descriptive of the BSD attitude. Couldnt say it better myself.
