I really liked the blog articles you wrote:


and you have very good suggestions.

You seem like a very positive person, and are willing to make good
suggestions and contributions.

We (FreeBSD community) should take your suggestions, because you are a newcomer,
so you are seeing things with fresh eyes.

I am a bit busy these days, but would you have time to maybe help me
write some HOWTO's for
FreeBSD, especially things that help people migrate from Linux to FreeBSD?
